Don't Be a Goat!


If Jesus were to come today, which group would you be in: His sheep, or the Devil’s goats?

"...I will show you my faith by my works." - James 2:18

Jesus says that when He comes again all mankind will be divided into two camps–the sheep and the goats. The sheep are in His eternal kingdom. The goats are not. He says the sheep feed the hungry, clothe the needy, and care for those who are sick and in prison. Does this mean we get to heaven by good works? Absolutely not! God’s Word says, “For by God’s grace we are saved through faith, and not of ourselves. It is a gift of God, not as a result of works.”

What Jesus is saying is that true faith always results in good works, especially to the needy. We can’t do it all, but the church can. When we have saving faith and begin to give and serve through a local church, we take part in all types of ministries as a part of the body of Christ.
