Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

We have meditated on the works of God and how we are to exalt his works as David did. Now let us go further and examine the kind of works God expects from us.

 1. Let us do good works that our light shine before men.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

3. Us believing Christ has been sent by God is a work of God.

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

4. Faith and works must go together.

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
James:2:17

But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
James:2:20

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
James:2:26

So dear children of God, let us learn to do good works worthy of God's glory. Let us not cease acknowledging the mighty works of God's hands either.... that CHRIST wil be glorified in and through us. Amen.
