Devotional April 30, 2015
For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.
James isn’t saying that you have to work your way to heaven, but he is saying that it isn’t living and real faith unless you act that faith out with good works.
I need to do good works. Not because it gets me to heaven, but because it proves my faith isn’t dead.
Dear Father, I pray that you will guide me to do the things that prove to you that my faith is real. Things that prove to others that my faith is real. And things that will show non believers your love. In Jesus’ name, amen.
