Today Reminder - 13 June 2012 (Good deeds part 2)

My prayer for you for today is that you will be your faith, in Jesus name.

James 2:17
So you see, faith by itself isn't enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.

Good deeds part 2 – Actions speak louder than words. James writes about faith without works and makes it clear that faith leads to good deeds. It is our faith that takes us to the needy, it is our faith that leads us to the broken hearted, it is our faith that makes us pray for other. James writes that believing alone is not enough, we must act – (verse 19-20) You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can't you see that faith without good deeds is useless? 

My dear friend, the very last message Jesus gave on the mountain before He went up to heaven was:  Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28) 

Therefore our faith is not an idle faith but a faith of works and deeds leading those that are astray to one and only living God. It is through our faith that we will be saved and it is this gift that must drive the passion in us to take this message to the world through the love of Jesus.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
