Faith and Works

Posted on Updated on

AMP:So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead).

James 2:17

There’s something I want you to see (if you haven’t seen it before) in that scripture. It says that faith without works is dead, which then means that without works, faith does not exist, that work is the life and power of faith.

When action is not added to belief, there you have a faithless situation. You cannot conceive, believe, and achieve if you do not “work-ieve”!! So, it is not enough to believe, you must DO something. No matter the strength of your belief, without action, nothing happens.

That action may be possession of virtues such as committment, discipline, love, patience, diligence, obedience, but there must be something or somethings you have to do, that connects you to your beliefs or desired future!

There is always something, or somethings that you have to do to deliver the results you believed for; the children of Israel, led by Moses, had to move close to the formidable Red Sea, to show there obedience to God, and readiness to cross over it, and Moses had to stretch his rod, still in obeisance to God, before this great sea quickly constructed a highway for God’s people- by God’s arrangent

Happy Day to you!
