    Jimbo, there is a difference between the good that all, even unbelievers, should be doing, and the "good works" that Christians alone can do. Do you know what that difference is?

    “How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?”
    Gal 3:3

    Matthew 6
    6 “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.
    Look now to our adversaries (I mean the priesthood, at whose beck and pleasure others
    ply their enmity against us), and consider with me for a little by what zeal they are actuated.
    The true religion which is delivered in the Scriptures, and which all ought to hold, they
    readily permit both themselves and others to be ignorant of, to neglect and despise;

    Nor to practice them in the presence of others. Ever notice the "sinless" ones here talk of their love, wisdom, works, righteousness quite often, and talk down to others? Wasn't there a sect in Scripture that did the same?

    Sounds eerily familiar:

    Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'

    Do you mean the miracles done in the bible or the good things you have done? I like it when God caused water to come out of a rock for thousands of people to drink.

    But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Galatians 6:14
    Ezekiel 18:23 Do I have any pleasure in the death of the wicked,” declares the Lord God, “rather than that he should turn from his ways and live?

    Since this is not really an assembly of God but an online forum, it could seem boasting to list the works of God given each of us.

    If we boast, we certainly do not boast of ourselves but of God.

    God uses all of us for His wonderful and perfect purpose.

    I will give one work only God has blessed me with, and that is the good work of prayer.

    God bless all in Jesus Christ, amen.

    I'm not a bad guy. I'm just misunderstood.

    oh

    this is not what I expected when I read the title for the op

    I thought maybe people were going to discuss some of the good works certain others are telling some others that you are not saved if you don't do them?

    nothing wrong with that I thought. but noooooooo. instead Jim here is getting spanked and I'm not sure he was trying to brag

    well anyway, here is something I read while looking for something else. it's a good testimony of kindness and love, surely something every Christian can actually agree on? I would hope?

    PLUS it's anonymous so no one is trying to win twinkie points here. but, cover your ears children, it's from that she preacher Joyce Meyer and I guess that could start a whole other kafluffle

    Love Can Change People

    by Joyce Meyer - posted May 18, 2017
    …The righteous gives and does not spare.
    —Proverbs 21:26 NKJV
    I once read a story in Guideposts magazine, a remarkable account of how love changed a person's life. A Christian woman lived next door to an elderly lady who never came out of her house or even raised her window shades to let light into her home. This lady’s husband had died, and she herself had endured a stroke, which had left her lonely and bitter.
    The Christian woman and her two young children began trying to reach out to the elderly recluse, but every time they did, she rejected their advances. They baked cookies every week for a long time and delivered them to their neighbor’s door. The first time, she opened the door just a crack, accepted the cookies, thanked them, and closed the door.
    The neighbor’s response was not what the Christian woman had hoped for, but she lovingly persisted. And eventually love did work! The elderly lady accepted a casserole from her and said more than just a short thank-you. As the visits continued, the elderly woman gradually began to chat longer. Finally, one day, the Christian woman’s children picked some flowers from their garden and delivered them to their neighbor. Eventually, they all became good friends. The elderly lady got her life back. She opened her blinds, her door, and her heart, and she began to live again—all because someone who loved God was determined to love her.
    Many people in the world today are just like the elderly neighbor. They have had sadness or difficulties in their lives and have become bitter. They seem to reject love, yet love is what they need most. Be a person who gives of yourself and your resources to reach out and show love to someone who desperately needs it.
    Love Others Today: Do you know someone who is angry, sad, or bitter? How can you show love to that person?

    What is it that makes a "good work" good?

    Yeah but they'd have to boast about it, in the form of advertising and such..
