Faith in Action

Leap-of-faith“As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.”—James 2:26.

Most Christians are familiar with the phrase—“Faith without works is dead.” However, far too many live as though their motto is this—“Faith without works is just fine.”

The results of faith are not realized until you are willing to put your faith into action. Abraham would not have been blessed by God if he had not stepped out in faith and left his homeland as God told him to do (Hebrews 11:8-9). Those who believe in Jesus do not receive the salvation that he promises until they obey him in baptism (Mark 16:16). Those who want God’s full blessing in their life will not receive it until they put him to the test by bringing him the whole tithe (Malachi 3:10).

Is your faith merely words you speak? Or do you put your faith into action?

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