| Be thou faithful
unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Webster's 1st ed., 1828
I know that "faith" without works is dead. I know that
good works are defined by God's Law, not man's. I adhere to the Law
of God at all costs, in every area of life.
The weightier matters of the Law:
justice and mercy and faith.

and then act in harmony with it.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence
of things not seen.
-- Hebrews 11:1
My life is a faithful representation of God's blueprints for man.
My allegiance to God's Law and my strict adherence to duty leads

In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined
according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to
the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should
be to the praise of His glory.
-- Ephesians 1:11-12

ways. I will delight myself in Thy statutes: I will not forget Thy
