September 24 Afternoon Quotes of The Day

Faith and Obedience Are Bound Together
2 Thessalonians 1:3; James 2:14–26

Faith and obedience are bound up in the same bundle. He that obeys God, trusts God, and he that trusts God, obeys God. He that is without faith is without works; and he that is without works is without faith. Do not oppose faith and good works to one another, for there is a blessed relationship between them; and if you abound in obedience your faith shall grow exceedingly.

Human Reason Deficient Concerning God
Job 11:7–9; Psalm 145:3; Ecclesiastes 1:3; 3:11; 8:16–17; Isaiah 40:13; 55:8–9; Acts 17:18–32; 1 Corinthians 1:20–21; Titus 1:2

Human reason is very deficient in things concerning God. A sign of this is that philosophers in their researches, by natural investigation, into human affairs have fallen into many errors, and have disagreed among themselves. And consequently, in order that men might have knowledge of God, free of doubt and uncertainty, it was necessary for divine matters to be delivered to them by way of faith, being told to them, as it were, by God Himself who cannot lie.
