The good works of the charity worker: in God, to the glory of God, the works of God

Acts ch. 9, ver. 36b:

Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did
(Acts 9:36 KJV)

 

“Full of good works and alms-deeds”

For there are other good works besides almsdeeds, though many […] have shrunk up charity to a hand breadth, to giving of alms.

Let our works be done in God, #Joh 3:21

But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

and for God, #1Co 10:31

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Let there be good actions and good aims; and then they shall be the works of God, #Joh 6:28

Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
