Doers of the law will be justified

We Christians say salvation is by faith. Yet the New Testament calls us to put our faith into action. Otherwise our faith is worthless.

 

Romans 2:13. For it isn’t the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be justified.

Titus 3:1. Remind them to be in subjection to rulers and to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,

James 2:14. What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but has no works? Can faith save him?

James 2:17. Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead in itself.

James 2:18. Yes, a man will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without works, and I by my works will show you my faith.

James 2:24. You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone. (NIV translation)

James 2:26. For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead.

Revelation 19:8. It was given to her that she would array herself in bright, pure, fine linen: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

Revelation 20:12. I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Revelation 22:14. Blessed are those who do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city.
