Faith creates works, however Gods Ppl won’t be judged by works on judgement day, because if they were all would go to hell because all have sinned before they started walking with God (Romans 3:9-17,23,28). Its impossible for Gods ppl to be justified by works alone, if so God would remember all the bad works we did as well. (Romans 3:20) Jesus blood wipes out our slate of sin, and because the most high is faithful that promised, he remembers our sins no more (Deutoronomy 7:9, Isaiah 43:25) when we believe in Jesus (Galatians 3:22). FAITH is how we changed. Faith is what allows us to believe in Jesus (John 3:16-17), faith is what allows us to yield to righteousness for our God (Romans 6:13), the law is established through faith, because we believe, not works (Romans 3:31)! We are justified by faith. Justified where? Paul meant on judgement day when he said we are justified by faith (Romans 3:28). However faith without works is dead (James 2:26); Meaning you can’t say I believe in God, but you are being worldly, and comfortable in sin, Because when when we accept Christ we put off the old man and it’s fleshly ways, And put on the new man (Ephesians 4:22-24). Yes it is a process, but you have to have FAITH that the most high will complete the work he started in you, even when you fall!(Philippians 1:6).
You have to encourage yourself with scriptures! Don’t let the enemy come steal your joy! I always tell myself, God… You said seek righteousness and I will be field… You can’t lie! Deliver me please! I be like God your son died for this very reason, that I won’t perish!
