As those who have received the gift of righteousness, we have a responsibility to bear the righteous deeds which is the proof that we have received the gift of righteousness or walking in the light.
As we have received of the lord this free and precious gift, lets us go all out to do the works that demonstrate and complete our faith. By this we overcome evil, and establish goods will on the earth. Shalom
