    Faith, hope, and love are indeed prominent in the Scriptures. Faith and hope appear together at the onset of the great faith chapter in the book of Hebrews (Heb. 11). On the basis of a settled, active, and confident faith in God, the believer can live a life of assured hope; “Now faith is being sure of what hope for, being convinced of what. In the book of James in the New Testament, Jesus’ half brother writes that faith without works is dead. He goes on to explain that true faith would produce a new life that would in turn produce good works. Before moving into the differences of faith and works, we must define faith.

    Faith and Works 16 If one of you tells him, “Go in peace; stay warm and well fed,” but does not provide for his physical needs, what good is that? 17 So too, faith by itself, if it is not complemented by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. Good works are at once the fruits and the evidences of a true and lively faith.

It is clear in these passages that true faith or saving faith will produce good works. For works will flow from saving faith. Good works must be present in the lives of those who profess faith in Christ. Otherwise that which they claim to have is nonexistent. But good works will flow from a true saving faith. APPLICATION: Here is a question for. Note: “Good works can never purchase salvation, but they are an evidence of the faith that acts by love and purifies the soul.” The Desire of Ages, “Just as a good tree will bear good fruit, so will the tree that is actually planted in the Lord’s garden produce good fruit unto eternal life.
