Faith Without Works

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? James 2:14

Faith without works is dead, you probably heard this phrase before what does it really mean? First you have to ask yourself, can you truly have faith without ever proving it? Can you truly be a disciple of Christ if the world never knows it? We are called to be The Salt of The Earth and The Light of The World, can this be accomplished with no works?

Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:15-17

As Christians we need to not only talk the talk but walk the walk, Jesus called us to not only make disciples but to love, help and support one another. We can’t be truly living Gods Word if we don’t take it into action. We need to remember we are Gods hands and feet, we need to strive to do his will

You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that–and shudder. You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? James 2:19-20

Just believing in God is not enough, even Satan knows there is a God yet he doesn’t choose to follow him. This is the difference, your actions and lifestyle truly reflect your faith. Its good to believe but if you truly do believe then you have to put it into action

As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. James 2:26

You can call yourself a Christian but unless people see Christ living in you, your religion is worthless. Just like Peter took a leap of faith and followed Jesus to walk on the water, take your leap of faith in your works in Jesus Name Amen
