James 2:14-17 Sharing My Faith, With Works
14 What use is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone says he has faith, but he has no work? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? 17 In the same way, faith also, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.
The author of the book of James says in so many ways, our faith requires action, the Lord doesn’t want a church full of pew warmers or members who do absolutely nothing. A member of the Lord’s church should treat it like being on a sports team or a musical group. When I was in little league baseball, I really hated being a benchwarmer and watching the rest of the team being active and even if we were winning I felt really bored. As Christians your faith should have action. Noah used his faith to put a saw to a tree, then hammer to nail cause the Lord gave Noah instruction of how big to make the ark and also how to make it float. Is your faith afloat or is it stinking, if a person is in need and they need food, clothes , a nice place to sleep or money do you offer any. If you don’t do any of the material things to give to the needy, there is nothing to worry, is some of your friendly time and even a prayer, sometimes a prayer a lot to a broken soul. If Noah hadn’t acted on his faith , he and his family would have drown like the rest of the world, it is our job as Christians to tell the family of God about the love of the Lord and how each lost soul can be saved and have a peace of mind, the they are loved more than they can imagine. Don’t let your faith be dead brothers and sister, go bless lost souls with love of Christ, put your faith into action. God bless you all, the Lord loves you and do I. Samuel H.
Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world, and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
