An awesome study

Some excellent points in a recent study I am involved in with a couple awesome sisters in the Lord. Wonderful truths and thoughts!
The more intimately we know God, the easier it will be for us to trust Him. The more we trust Him, the more works we will give as evidence of that trust.
There is no greater evidence of what we really believe than how we behave. If what we say we believe does not affect our behavior, it is to be doubted.
We are saved by faith ALONE-but not by faith that IS alone.
God holds us accountable only for how we respond to those truths to which we have been exposed. Your walk with God and your ministry to others is directly tied to what you do with what God has revealed to you.
All of us should recognize that we stand before God always and ONLY by grace. Yet sadly though we recognize our need from grace from God, often we demand justice in our relationships with others.
We all need to experience and embrace God's forgiveness in a great enough measure to become agents of grace in the lives of others.

I am always worried about how lame my relationship to God must look to Matt- Why can't I just live like I do trust GOd all the time!! It seems to me we learn to trust GOd as He brings us through very difficult times. I wish it didn't have to be that way but He made it so by His infinite wisdom and He knows best.
