James 2:14-19
14 Dear brothers and sisters, what’s the use of saying you have faith if you don’t prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can’t save anyone. 15 Suppose you see a brother or sister who needs food or clothing, 16 and you say, “Well, good-bye and God bless you; stay warm and eat well–but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? 17 So you see, it isn’t enough just to have faith. Faith that doesn’t show itself by good deeds is no faith at all-it is dead and useless. 18 Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” I say, “I can’t see your faith if you don’t have good deeds, but I will show you my faith through my good deeds.” 19 Do you still think it’s enough just to believe that there is one God? Well, even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror! 20 Fool! When will you ever learn that faith that does not result in good deeds is useless?

Do you register your faith by a set of Christian teachings? If so, then you faith is incomplete. Faith has nothing to do with what we agree to, but has everything to do with what we know is true. True faith transforms our conduct as well as our thoughts. If your life remains unchanged after making a statement of faith in Christ, then you don’t truly believe the truth you claim. We can not earn our salvation by serving and obeying God. But such actions show that our commitment to God is real. Deeds of loving serve and obedience are not a substitute for, but rather a verification of our faith in Christ. Jesus told us the poor would always be with us, but that is not an excuse to not do what you can to meet their needs. If you see a hungry person, feed them, or someone with a need you can meet, do it. I believe that God brings people before us to see what we will do. Will we give out of our abundance or will we walk away. Do not walk away give because you believe Christ and because He gave to you.

Have a God Day!
