Bible Reading: James 2.14-17
What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. James 2:14-17
Thank God it’s not “a chicken and egg” dilemma, Faith versus Works. Christ said He was the only way (John 14:6). Then Paul followed with, For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). Then in today’s verses, James tells us that others will know we have faith, because they see our faith in our actions. So let us ask ourselves, Do others know we are Christians by what they see? May we continue our transformation from things of this world to being more mature disciples by working and bringing God glory.
