CQOD: 12/22/05 -- Barclay: commitment in faith

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 22, 2005
    But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 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? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
    -- James 2:20-23 (KJV)

    Faith is not only a commitment to the promises of Christ; faith is also a commitment to the demands of Christ.
    ... William Barclay (1907-1978), The Letters of James and Peter [1976]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I want to follow You in faith and action.
