Faith that works

Faith is the beginning of our union with God: the true believers are the stone of the church of God, prepared for the edifice of God the Father, which is raised up to the heights by the power of Jesus Christ, that is, by the Cross and help of the grace of the Holy Spirit. "Faith without works is dead," (James 2:26).  The works of faith are love, peace, longsuffering, mercy, humility, bearing one's cross and life by the Spirit.  True faith cannot remain without works.  One who truly believes will also surely perform good works.
