How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.
James 2:18 (NLT)
It is easy to say we have faith in God. The test however is whether our faith is affecting our everyday living? Although the dictionary and most people treat faith as a noun, James is suggesting that faith is really a verb. Faith without action he says is dead. The faith that James is writing about isn’t something we “have” but something we “live.” Faith that we have, displays itself every once in a while, especially if something troubling happens. But the faith James is writing about is an everyday realization that God is with us and we are living for Him. It affects our actions. James asks a great question. If your life isn’t being lived out for Jesus in the way you love others, then is it really faith? Today, let’s not “have” faith. Let’s “live” it. May our faith bless all those around us.
Dear Father, forgive me for my dead faith. Help me really believe in you and live my life with a faith that is vibrant and blessing all those around me.
