Faith without works is dead!
"What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works, can faith save him?" James 2:14
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
The half-brother of our Lord Jesus is looking at his Jewish brethren and asking a question that we all should consider. Is anything accomplished by saying we have faith in God, but doing nothing to work... that faith out in our lives? Many people believe in God and many say, but few are doers, few are "thus speak and thus do" What does this profit? The argument that you might hear is, "God will do it! I just will sit and wait on him!" James says this kind of faith, this lack of action, and this lazy fearful approach to life is self-serving and has no true substance to it! It is a faith that is dead! Put action behind your words of faith today! Be ye doers of the word!
Hard work yields many profits, and sincere faith is working for God!
THIS DAY IN DEVOTION:
Words matter, put action behind your words!
