If God Says to Be Careful…

Read the Bible in a year by reading Titus 3 today.
If God says to be careful to do something, then friends, with all the diligence that we are capable of mustering, we need to be careful to do it. In Titus 3:8, there is just such a message. Paul wrote by the Spirit of God,
This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men (Titus 3:8).
Are you listening to the Holy Spirit in Paul’s words? The Spirit of God says that if you believe in God, that we need to be careful to maintain good works. Am I careful to maintain good works or is it something that I do occasionally when the fancy strikes me? Somehow that does not sound like what the Lord is telling us in this passage. Therefore, let it be said of us that we are full of good works. In fact, could I be convicted of doing good works or is there insufficient evidence?
