This is the revelation that is shaping my life today – I must get the role and location of faith and good works in the right context of my life with God.

James 2:14,17-18,26 NLT

Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. [18] Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” [26] Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works.

[20] For he has dedicated a new, life-giving way for us to approach God. For just as the veil was torn in two, Jesus’ body was torn open to give us free and fresh access to him!
