Hello Faith, meet Deeds

“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action and deeds, is dead”

James 2:17 (NIV)

Living by ‘faith’ is basically living as if God is present. When we take the time, effort or money to help others, we are living out the fact that there is a God and that He will take care of us if we take care of others. We are “trusting” Him.

This verse is telling us that a good indicator we have ‘faith’ and trust God is that we try to help meet the needs of others. Then our ‘faith’ is not ‘dead’ or powerless. Instead, our ‘faith’ is ignited with power and life so that we can experience a daily fulfillment.


Heavenly Father, give me the strength to live out my faith by taking time with You and taking time to help others. Give my ‘faith‘ power and life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
