“This being so, I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.
– Acts 24:16
Because of Paul’s faith in God, and hope for an ultimate resurrection, he made it his aim to act in a manner consistent with that belief. This is important and instructive.
If we truly believe—as we assert that we do—that God is, and that we will one day stand before Him in His presence, then that faith will drastically transform the way in which we live. But if the way we live is not transformed, it is only right to question whether or not our ‘faith’ is genuine. This is ultimately why James would write, “Faith, if it does not have works, is dead.”
