The second section is a Topical Study on Good Works called Good Works, Good Glory from a Truthbase.net sermon outline. There also is an accompanying audio of the sermon, if you need help in getting to sleep. The outline gives you some key verses to ponder. If you can't figure out the point (they are designed, for the most part, to be self-explanatory with a little thought), grab some coffee and play the audio.
Soli Deo gloria!
