Faith, The Lifestyle of Saints
Faith Justifies Work
The example of Abraham as the Father of Faith is based on his ability to follow the instructions of God. He was directed to make a sacrifice, a great sacrifice. He was the foreshadow (type) of Christ by offering his son as a sacrifice.
Abraham demonstrated great faith in God, and Isaac was his only son, Isaac was very special and yet the same God who gave him this special son used this situation to prove Abraham's faith. Abraham's faith was justified by the work of his faith, his work was believing in what God asked him to do. Can you sacrifice your child because God asked you too? Will whatever God asks you to do justify your faith in Him?
If your faith in God can not justify your works of God than you need to check your faith.
Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
The LORD Is There, Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35); we thank You for justification. We praise You for the works that you give unto our hands to do Your will. We decree and declare blessings upon those who desire to have their faith justified by works, so that by the works that are assigned by God we justify our faith. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
