Today’s Reading – James
My brothers and sisters, what good is it if people say they have faith but do nothing to show it? Claiming to have faith can’t save anyone, can it? Imagine a brother or sister who is naked and never has enough food to eat. What if one of you said, “Go in peace! Stay warm! Have a nice meal!”? What good is it if you don’t actually give them what their body needs? In the same way, faith is dead when it doesn’t result in faithful activity. James 2:14-17 CEB
The book of James has always been one of my favorite books in the Bible.
Perhaps because James is so forthright with common sense advice on how to live our faith. James is all about how you live your faith because with out living your faith it is dead.
Every week I end our worship services with the words:
God loves you . . . Jesus died for you . . .
and how you live your faith matters – NOW and Always!
Until today, I had not directly made the connection between my benediction and the words of James.
Good to know that the Bible can so penetrate your life that they become synonymous.
What part of the Bible has penetrated your life?
