Faith and Works

There has been alot of controversy amongst us about this topic.  Perhaps what we must do is to realize that these both go "hand in hand".  We know per the Scriptures that we are saved by grace through faith and not through works.  There is nothing we can boast/brag about in this. (https://biblehub.com/ephesians/2-8.htm

Therefore this is not the issue.  What about after we are saved?  How does this work then?  What about this passage of Scripture (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+2%3A14-26&version=NKJV Yes, this is true.  So, how do we apply both? 

Imagine if you will about a door in front of you.  Behind that door you hear God saying, "There are good things behind that door".  You answer, "Yes, God!  I believe there are good things behind that door!"  You, keep repeating the same response over and over again.  "Yes, Wonderful things behind that door!"  "Wow such amazing things are there!" 

Now here is the question.  How can we realize those good things behind that door, until we actually reach out and open the door

This is an example of faith and works working together.

Blessings Very Richly
