Faith and works are a delicate balance in the Christian walk. If the emphasis is placed on works then it could possibly lead us to legalism. If the focus is on faith alone then it can lead us to complacency. Helping our students learn how to balance faith and works in their walk is crucial to growth and maturity in Christ. We need to show our students how faith and works go hand in hand.
To be totally honest, I didn’t start reading the Bible on a consistent basis until I was in college. I didn’t read much of anything until I was in college. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the Bible or thought it wasn’t important, I just didn’t know where to start.
The Bible is a big volume with 66 books in it. Where would I begin and why would I begin there? It took finding a reading plan before my daily Bible reading took off.
