Put Your Faith Into Actions
James 2 (selected) NIV
“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” “But someone will say, ‘You have faith; I have deeds. Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.”
The Bible is clearly telling us that faith without works is dead. If you do not put your faith into action, then you probably don’t have much of a faith. When we let God into our hearts and truly try to put our faith into actions every day; something miraculous happens. God takes control of our thoughts, actions and words. Our love for others, our kindness toward others, and our love for Christ can be seen through our works. We can talk the talk (faith) but we need to walk the walk (actions). Ask God to look into your heart during the Lay Renewal and renew your commitment to serve Him.
Dear God, we thank you for the opportunity to be renewed in our faith. We pray that we will take our renewed faith and turn it into actions. Actions that will reflect the image and love of You. Actions that will make us more Christ like.
