The apostle Paul said that man is “justified by faith apart from works of the law” while James said that man is “justified by works and not by faith alone”. So, how do we make sense of this oxymoron?
Christian, are you using what God has entrusted to you? Do do seek, to be like Jesus, to build up the body of Christ so that the church can manifest the wisdom of God through His church? Will he find you – at the day of reckoning – in want?
In “pointing to Jesus” the Old Testament is full of shadows and figures. One of them is the Nazarite vow which reveals the true and total commitment to God. Sounds like the life of a faithful Christian!
