Of Faith and Works – 2

James 2:18   (KJV)   18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

There is no contradiction between faith and works.

We have faith; we have works too. Faith is important; so is works.

We’re saved by grace through faith—faith that’s evidenced by works.

The comparison is between faith without works and faith with works. Faith is the given.

Faith is the root, works is the fruit. A person truly saved by faith will have works to show it. And yes, by their fruits, we know them.
