The Works of Abraham

​The works of Abraham are the works of God. Abraham’s work sprung out of faith. That is what God wants us to do. God wants us to have works that are alive like those of Abraham.

The works of Abraham were the works of faith. In James 2:26 the Bible says, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” (KJV‬‬). Are you into dead works? Works without faith in Jesus Christ are useless because they are dead works.

What does Jesus say about works? Well, he told the Jews that they did not do the works of Abraham when they claimed that they were Abraham’s children. In John 8:39 The Bible says, “They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham” (KJV‬‬).
