Faith vs Works

We will be saved by our faith in Jesus and not by the amount of good works. However, a faith without works is not real. If I say that I have faith but I do not materialize it or I do not have the courage to act it, what profit will there be? None! It would be like having a heart and it doesn’t work; it's inside of me, but it doesn’t give me life.
Without the use of faith the person is full of problems and his/her life is destroyed. I am not referring only to physical accomplishments, but it takes faith even to conquer Salvation. It is no use to have faith and not make use of it to leave sin, traditions and religion; and obey the Word.
Genuine and supernatural faith, given by God Himself, drives us to act and not cross our arms. It shows us that there are no barriers that we cannot overcome, even if the circumstances show otherwise.
We cannot show our faith with words. Through the transformation of our lives it is possible to put it into evidence, even without speaking.
Of course, this faith comes through obedience to the Word of God. No one who lives in disobedience possesses the supernatural faith. It is the power of the Holy Spirit within each one of us and the only one that has the power to change our lives, starting with our interior.
So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.” (James 2:17).
