Faith is Dead

Faith is not something you say you have and then don’t do anything about. In the Bible it tells us, “faith without works is dead” (James 2:26).

You can have faith and believe there is a God, but if you don’t do any work that backs up the faith you have, it is as though you don’t have faith. Whoa! That makes you take a step back and look at your life, doesn’t it? It does for me.

 

Am I living out the faith that I have in Jesus’ name?

Am I loving others around me the way Jesus does?

Am I doing work for the Lord even if it is hard, dirty work that no one else wants to do?

 

God didn’t say it was going to be easy. He also told us we would be persecuted for our belief (Matt 24:9, John 15:20). But if you have faith and love Jesus the way he loves us it wouldn’t matter if you are persecuted or not. It wouldn’t matter how hard life is because JESUS IS WORTH IT!

Is Jesus worth it to you?

Are you willing to do whatever God calls you to do even if it makes you stand out in front of a crowd or costs you your life here on earth?

Don’t sit back and wait for someone else to do the work. Get up, get going and do the work yourself! God is with you every step of the way!

We have the ultimate reward waiting for us in heaven….the crown of life! We are all princes and princesses in the kingdom of God! Let’s fight for the kingdom and live with a bold faith!

 

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the CROWN OF LIFE that God has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12
