  • God is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9)

    A. W. Tozer said, “One compromise here. Another there. And soon the so-called Christian, and the man in the world, look the same.”

    When someone is truly born again, their faith in the Lord changes them. Their actions and behaviors change, letting the world know in whom they have believed. And while their works are not the cause or reason for salvation, they are the evidence or proof of salvation. The word faith is used here as a verb, and it is always demonstrated by action.
