Faith in  Christ   leads to action




“Still, (in) my heart the battle was raging.
Not all prisoners of war have come home.
There were battlefields of my own making.
I didn’t know that the war had been won.

Then I heard that the King of the ages had fought all the battles for me,
And that victory was mine for the claiming.
And now, praise His name, I am free!”[1]

2Co 5:18-19  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
