…Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls…  Jeremiah 6:16

James 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.


The soul of man is only saved by grace through faith.  Faith is a treasure from the Lord that He plants within the heart.  It is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  True faith is a producer.  Notice our text verse.  Faith produces works.  Faith works is Christian fruit.   Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit.  If a person is a born again child of God then this faith is in them and this faith opens the avenue of fruit.  The ability to be a fruit producer is in them.  The lost soul will attempt to produce fruit over and over again, but will always fail and fall to the flesh.  This is a true sign of a fake.  The carnal flesh does not have the ability to produce eternal fruit, only carnal fruit of low quality and temporary effectiveness.  The true child of God with true faith within the heart will produce fruit of eternal quality.  There are many ways to discern true fruit.  One of these signs is the mouth.  Luke 6 tells us for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.  Many times we mistakenly assume this is sinful language, but that is not totally true.  The born again child of God has the Spirit of God within and this same Spirit is a discerner.  There are no words in the English language that can describe true Spiritual discernment.  If you have the Spirit you know what I mean and if you do not have the Spirit of God within then you have no clue what I’m speaking of.  The language of a child of God speaking in faith will be laced and anointed with the presence of God.  The fake faith of the sinner will not have this discerned anointing and will only speak carnal faith.  So we see that fake faith will not last.  Living by faith carnally is very, very hard work and therefore it will not last.  This forced fruit of the fake will eventually play out.  But the true faith works of the child of God is eternal.  These will produce fruit and not even realize it.  The limbs of the true faith will bend with fruit.  Dear friend is your faith fruit bearing faith?  Many times we are guilty of allowing our flesh to hold back our spiritual fruit.  We have fruit bearing on our heart, but the worldly persuasion is tugging and pushing us away from it.  Child of God, be careful not to allow secular society to rob you of the blessings of fruit bearing.  True faith is a fruit producer.  Amen.

Proverbs 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips..

There is probably nothing more annoying than to have to sit and listen to someone brag on his or her self. The Lord has led us to discuss this sin several times lately. Have you ever wondered why it bothered you? It bothers you because it is not of the Lord. He is bold in warning us against this in several places throughout the scriptures. A person who continually brags on their own self is someone who has a self esteem problem. They feel inadequate and are searching some way to fill the gap. In reality, the only thing that will fill that gap is faith in the Lord Jesus. The boasting Christian is a Christian of little faith. They do not put their trust in the Lord. They are usually a person who attempts to be self-confident. Dear friend, we are helpless without the Lord. If anything is right in our life it is through the strength and ability of the Lord Jesus. We are nothing of ourselves. The carnal flesh sub-conscientiously wishes to be its own god. We must act in our spirit against such temptation. Friend, be careful not to be a braggart. As our verse states, we should be willing that any compliments come from others. Yes, it is encouraging to hear a compliment of our self, but we must see that it to comes from others. Remember, a person who is a self-braggart is a person of little faith in the Lord. Jer. 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD. Amen!

Proverbs 25:14 Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain..

No one enjoys being around a braggart. This is someone that is always bragging on his or her self. Their agenda is to make themselves look better than everyone else. These type people usually have an arrogant attitude and a self-centered spirit. The real problem is lack of confidence. Actually we discussed this type person a short time ago over in Psalm 19:13. A braggart is trying to cover up the real problem, lack of faith. Faith in the Lord gives strength and peace beyond explanation. Lack of faith causes the overwhelming feeling of insufficiency. As a child of God we are to walk by faith not by sight. As a preacher I see many preachers doing and saying all kinds of put-on action in hopes of getting another preaching appointment or maybe to get considered for a pastorate position at a certain church. No matter what type front we present, the Lord knows us thoroughly. He knows us inside and out. There is nothing hid from Him. Our fake front does not impress Him. So what will impress God? It is a faithful servant. How many dozens of examples have we seen in the scriptures that prove that He seeks out faithful servants? We see results in a life that walks in faith. “Thy faith hath made thee whole”. “Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace”. “Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee”. These are just a few. Faith impresses God! How much money we have does not impress God. How much worldly possessions we have does not impress God. Our selfish works do not impress Him either. It is faith that turns His head. Remember Bartimaeus? His faith caused the Lord to stop in His tracks. Friend, stop trying to present some dog and pony show to prove who you are to the world and just determine to be faithful. A fake front is compared to clouds without rain. Clouds without rain are just clouds. They appear to hold blessings but they are empty. I want to be full of faith. I want to impress Him. And if we impress Him with our faith then we will impress others without effort. Let’s make Jesus look good. It’s all about Him anyway. Amen.

Proverbs 20:24 Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?


Life here on earth is very entertaining to say the least. We plan out our day and most of the time we have appointments and plans that fill each day. Many of us have our calendars all noted and set. I have known folks to be so addicted to their calendar that they go into panic mode if any unexpected changes arise. Our verse reminds us that we are not in charge as much as we might like to think. The person our verse speaks of is a person who actually desires to please the Lord. This is the person who has a spiritual desire to follow the leading of the Lord. Our word “man” at the beginning of the verse means a person who is a valiant warrior. This is the soldier of the Lord. Just as we have our days planned so does the Lord have our days planned. In the sovereignty of the Lord’s calendar He has our days timely planned out to fit His perfect plan. He will allow us to think we are in charge. As we lope through our day we so happily have the mind set that we are in control of the happenings. But it is a matter of fact that the Lord is actually guiding us from act to act. He so sovereignly causes us to wind up at certain places at an exact time so that He may use us as a witness of Him and His works. Many times He will direct us to a place or situation that He may personally teach us something. Now all this being said, how much more rewarding could our days be if we would slow down enough to be aware of His control? If we would be more aware of the spiritual happenings around us then we could gather more reasons to shout and praise Him at Sunday and Wednesday church services. If we would only be more aware of His guiding hand then we could break into a realm of worship almost every day of the week. We must not forget that this life is spiritual. We are here for one centered reason, to bring glory to the Lord. Slow down today and pay closer attention to your surroundings. The Lord has big plans for you today. Don’t get so mentally bent out of shape when something doesn’t unfold according to your personal plans. Don’t be so upset when God changes your calendar. This life is very eventful and exciting. Let’s enjoy it. Even in the times of sorrow and sadness we can find places to give Him glory. Psalm 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Amen.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
