Faith Without Works

"Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."
- James 2:17 (NIV). 

Napoleon Hill says that, "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe can be achieved." While this statement sounds rather grandiose there is certainly a measure of truth in it. It's pretty much the same as what Jesus said two thousand years earlier: "According to your faith be it unto you." - Matthew 9:29. But as James, the brother of Jesus, explained, without action faith is useless.

As the old saying goes, you can't steer a ship or a bicycle anywhere until they're moving. Zig Ziglar in his book, See You at the Top, put it this way: "The largest locomotive in the world can be held in its tracks while standing still simply by placing a single one-inch block of wood in front of each of the eight drive wheels. The same locomotive moving at 100 miles per hour can crash through a wall of steel reinforced concrete five feet thick."

The important thing is that we get moving! As James said, "Faith without works is dead." 

Some people are sitting around waiting for some kind of special call or revelation from God before they get involved in his work. It's not likely to happen because God has already given us lots of
instructions in his Word regarding what to do. All we need to do is read them ... and start moving.

Prayer: "Our Loving Father, please help me to be a doer of your Word and not just a hearer. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus loving Name I Pray, Amen." 

Please " Recommend  " this Daily Devotional Message and be Blessed.
