“Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their afflictions, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world”
The verity of our faith in God reveals itself in the doings of His love and His Life through us. The Greek word translated to visit means “to look upon in order to help or to benefit”. The truth of Christ within flows out into the world around us effortlessly. Love strains not, it does not work up works, its life is easily demonstrated for within itself is the nature to give of itself. Christ is the fountain from which His works flow.
The Father revealed His Love in giving His Son, the Son revealed the love by the giving of Himself and so will the fountain of Him within us give by the same law of love. Faith without works, love without giving, and light without fellowship are the impossibilities of those who hold in truth the Life of the Son within.
Pure Religion is known by the expression of Christ in us and through us.
“Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven”
As Jesus said “They will know you are my disciples if you love one another”. Another excellent truth filled post. Blessings Always.
Thank you for the kind words of encouragement..
Indeed love cannot be explained. Love is better depressed.
In our daily reading we are doing James this week so you confirmed something in me
It is a powerful and often neglected book in the New Testament.
