Back up faith with works
“Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:18, 22, 26 KJV https://www.bible.com/1/jas.2.18,22,26.kjv
A lot of us probably had conversations as children saying “When I grow up, I want to be a ...........”. Even as adults today we have somewhat mastered the saying of when I grow up... We receive the word of God we have ‘Faith’ but we continue to wish for when we grow up enough in the amount of Bible verses we can recite and the number of prayer points we know, or even in the amount of money we hope to have when we can now be a contributor to help the poor around us. Even in our secular life, we wait for when we grow up to be as eloquent as that mentor we have. The Bible says strong meat belongs to them that have by use learnt to discern good from evil. Faith that is not backed my works is dead. Peter had the heavy draw of fish because he cast the net into the water after Jesus asked him to do it. Do you trust God? Do you have Faith? Then step out of your comfort zone, albeit in baby steps and he will Lead you all the way. As you start a new month today. Why don’t you put your faith into practice. Get dressed and show up .. do the work to prepare yourself for the destination.... Take the first step towards the direction of faith and in no time you will realize that you are probably too far gone to turn back now and then you can trust God even more.... then the Faith becomes a reality..... Take that step today!!!!
Prayer: Father, thank you for your saving grace. Thank you for your promises and being mindful of me. I receive grace to step out in Faith through the help of the Holyspirit and I receive the blessings of obedience in Jesus name 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
