Good Works

In the Book of Titus, Paul emphasizes godly living, especially in the form of good works. Paul writes in Titus 2:14 that Jesus, "gave Himself on our behalf that He might redeem us (purchase our freedom) from all iniquity and purify for Himself a people (to be peculiarly His own), people who are eager and enthusiastic about living a life that is good and filled with beneficial deeds." Good works are a result of salvation.

We must remember that people know us as believers by our fruit; we reveal our love for Jesus more through what we do than through any other means. You and I demonstrate our faith by good works and living a holy life. Good works and holiness for the sake of good works and holiness will result in legalism, but when these endeavors are led and empowered by the Holy Spirit, they will bring life to you and to others. Good works done to impress people are not acceptable to God. Good works that are led and empowered by the Holy Spirit are the ones God uses to advance His kingdom here on earth.

Father, we know that the Person of the Holy Spirit is the One Who leads us and empowers us unto good works. Prepare us and equip us with the necessary resources to carry out what You have called us to do. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Love in Christ,
Jan :love:
