Ever wondered why the apostle James wrote,
FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD?
Well, what works is he referring to?
Considering that your works show your heart,
… they show what is behind your faith,
so therefore …
If your works are about you,
… there is no God in your faith,
as you are depending on yourself and your ability,
… and that faith is not going to work!
If your works are about others,
… then your faith is God-based,
… faith is working through love.
Galatians 5 6
Love is what links your faith to God,
… and is what makes faith work for you!
As Paul wrote to the Corinthians …
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three;
but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13 13
And the apostle James concluded,
Show me your faith without your works,
and I will show you my faith by my works.
James 2 18
If God’s way of doing things is in you,
… God’s provision will also be in you,
and your faith will surely not be dead,
