DOING WHAT IS RIGHT
ST JOHN 2:28-29
28And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming. 29If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.
2: 28-29 Our godly actions give visible proof that we are Christians. Many people do good things but don’t have faith in Jesus Christ. Others claim to have faith but rarely do anything good or helpful. A deficit in either faith or godly behavior will be cause for remorse when Christ returns. Because true faith always produces good deeds, those who claim to have faith and consistently live out their faith through good deeds are true believers. Good deeds cannot produce salvation (Ephesians 2: 8-9), but they are necessary proof that true faith is actually present (James 2: 14-17). John had witnessed Jesus continually helping and serving others. All the apostles understood Jesus’ priority of helping, serving, and encouraging those around him. Tyndale.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS letting the light of Christ shine thru you in the good deeds that you do. Good deeds cannot save you, but should show as proof of the salvation that you received.
