The moral works of the unregenerate, ("good works" only as far as their outward appearance,) are only a shadow and mask pretending to be virtue, yes they are only sins. (Gerhard)

Trinity 13

Galatians 3:5-14

God repays us for what He Himself did, and rewards us for what He Himself accomplished. (Cyprian) Mark&Lisa Tjernagel 7:00 p.m. Bible Study 8:00 p.m. ISU Bible Study - Durham Ctr. Our works are just as much gifts from God as His rewards are, and He Who has made Himself into a Debtor through the former, has also made us deserving through the latter. (Bernard)














Out of grace, God crowns in us not our merits, but His own gifts. (Gerhard) Phil.2:13 It is just as necessary that teachers who have God's blessing work hard at pressing home and giving prominence to the doctrine of Good works as it is that they do so with the doctrine of faith. (Luther) Theological Axioms collected by C.F.W. Walther. This month's theme: Good Works. Philippians 2:13 "It is God Who works in you: both to will and to work for His good pleasure."
