Reflections From The Bible And Life

Does Faith Alone Suffice?

Being a disciple of Christ and a Christian in true essence requires obedience, and it must be total obedience. It’s not enough to say “I believe in God”. Even demons believe in God. Faith without action is nothing.

Luke 6:46 says “Why do you call me Lord, Lord and do not do what I say?” This is quoted as Jesus was speaking to us.

In Matthew 7:21, the Lord says, ” Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father in Heaven.”

While we obey we should also submit our hearts willingly to Him as we do His bidding.
