A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website


Paul says, “Continue to work out your salvation, with great fear and trembling, because God is energizing you so that you will desire and do what always pleases Him.”

That doesn’t mean good works will get you to heaven, but James also reminds you that faith without a demonstration of your faith by good works is dead. Paul tells you often it is by faith you are saved so that none may boast. Jesus told you that all who believe in Him will not perish but will have eternal life. So it’s faith that gets you to heaven, but your good works demonstrate the faith you have in Him. The demonstration comes not because of duty, but because of love. Love for God and love for your brothers and sisters in His kingdom.
