Active Faith

Scripture

So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead….For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead. – James 2:17 & 26 ESV

Observation 

Faith must be accompanied by action or works to be real and life changing. Our actions reveal where we have placed our faith. 

Application

I have heard it said that adults vote with their feet. In other words, whatever we determine is important we will walk in that direction. The faith of a believer is not a knowledge only but it is also a life commitment. James points out:  “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe-and shudder!” – James 2:19. So our believe must take us toward a transformed life. Our belief in Christ will be made event in the life we live. 

Prayer

Lord reveal to us how we may put our faith into action.
