Works Mark the Christian It's not that works save the Christian , but that works mark the Christian. I am reading and we are studying on Wed., the book of James . It only makes sense that we who have been given much should give much. Not just with words but with our lives. James speaks basically to the Christian and is teaching some very valuable lessons. In James 2: 4 he says if people say they have faith , but do nothing their faith is worth nothing. Can faith like that save them? Christianity is more action on Monday than worship on Sunday. Faith and good deeds go hand in hand. God allows tough situations in our lives in oder to refine us and bring us closer to Him. We should approach these times with the right attitude and seek wisdom form God.
