    What is a Christian? Part Two

    “You are my friends if you do what I command”. – John 15:14

    In my opinion, the above quote is what defines a Christian life. The Bible says that we’re not saved by anything that we do but by faith in Jesus Christ alone.

    For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9

    However, the Bible also says:

    For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10

    For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead. – James 2:26

    In what ways, then, do we live out our faith? We live out our faith in our actions, attitude, obedience and discipline. We do these things out of deep love for the Lord and through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us. Coming up in this series will be posts on different ways that we live out our faith. I will be covering issues like speech, humility, meditation, fasting, silence and solitude, how to study your Bible and more.

    Now I want to ask you, is there anything about living out your faith that you would like me to write about? Leave your questions and suggestions in the comments below or if you would like to remain anonymous email them to projectinspired.com/contact.

    I can’t wait to hear your suggestions!

    But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” – James 2:18
