ACTION

If you think about The Game, you lose The Game…..The only way to win The Game is to really, honestly, forget about The Game.

Dedicated to all those who ACT on FAITH.

James 2

New International Version (NIV)

Faith and Deeds

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”

Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God.Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless[d]?

21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,”[e] and he was called God’s friend.24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.

25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

One thought on “ACTION

  1. How true this is……So faith by itself, it if has no works, is dead.

    As it is written that ” a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone… for faith needs deeds……

    Plus…. one should do what one can even if it is only on a small scale for…….

    Faith needs deeds.

    Just as a little snow ball starts to roll down the hill….it started out small, and as it rolls down the hill it becomes larger as it picks up snow…and in this case the Faith with its deeds become larger through all the Faith and deeds …… it is working together ——- bringing the opportunity for Faith and Deed to work jointly and thus ……… even without realizing …… God is putting them into the possition ……. but Faith needs the deed …..the soul must be willing…eventually the soul will be willing…..however, will it be too late?

    Don’t forget, that at the grave site…..no matter what deed and faith one has….then it is too late.

    Don’t waste the time waiting for inspiration. Begin, and inspiration will find you…..
