Good Works

Faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. James 2:17. Faith receives the good works of Christ, love bestows good works on our neighbor. Our faith is strengthened and increased when Christ is held forth to us in his own natural works, namely, that he associates with the blind, the deaf, the lame, the lepers, the

Fruits of the Spirit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness,goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.Galatians 5:22-23 (This Comes out of Luther's commentary to the Galatians, enjoy)The Apostle does not speak of the works of the Spirit as he spoke of the works of the flesh, but he attaches to these Christian virtues a better name.
Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matt. 7:12.Faith brings and gives Christ to you with all his possessions. Love gives you to your neighbor with all your possessions. These two things constitute a true and complete Christian life; then follow suffering and

Hope for Judgement

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. Matt. 25:34.This will take place publicly in the presence of all angels, men and creatures, and before the whole rabble of an ungodly world, that it may be seen who have

Receive One Another

Receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the gloryof God. Rom. 15:7.There are two reasons why we should receive one another. The first is because of Christ's example. The Scriptures present Christ to us as one upon whom fell the infamy of our sins — for us he was ignominious in God's sight — and who did
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life;and they are they which testify of me. John 5:39. The external word or preaching belongs to Christianity as a channel or means through which we attain unto the forgiveness of sins, or the righteousness of Christ, with which Christ reveals and offers us his grace

Glorify God

That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Rom. 15:6.All the good we can do to God is to praise and to thank him. This is the only true service we can render him. We receive all blessings from him, in return for which we should make the offering of praise. If anything else
Who so ever rewards evil for good, evil shall not depart from hishouse. Prov. 17:13.The heathen everywhere, despite their ignorance of God and his grace, condemned even to the utmost the evil of ingratitude. They regarded it the mother of evils, than which was none more malevolent and shameful. Among many examples in
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to standagainst the wiles of the devil. Eph. 6:11The devil neither sleeps nor rests, and consequently, it is not safe for a Christian to fold his hands and be idle. He is to consider how he may fortify himself against the power of the devil; for he is not called the prince of

Holy Baptism

Here is a portion from Augsburg confessions on Holy Baptism. It is always good to refresh ourselves on why we believe what we believe and to look at how the historic church had come to understand biblical truth. 1] We have now finished the three chief parts of the common Christian doctrine. Besides these we have yet to speak of our two
