I will show you my faith by my works. It is not enough to have an intellectual faith. There are people who will believe all The Bible, so far as assent to its teachings is concerned, and yet who are not a whit the better for it. The only faith that is of any avail is that which draws the life after it in obedience. We must show our faith in our works, and by our works. One may seem very sympathetic when need is before him, but if he does nothing to relieve the distress, his sympathy is only a pretence. Abraham was the great prince of faith, and when he began to believe in the true God he left home and country and followed the divine bidding over a trackless way, without question. The son of promise had been given to him, but when he was commanded to offer this son on the altar, he did not question the command nor ask how it could be consistent with the promise, but instantly obeyed. If we believe God, we must surrender our lives to Him absolutely.
