Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

By this definition, I fear that many people claiming to be believers are spiritual corpses. For our faith to be genuine, James says it must express itself in good deeds. Jesus said something similar in his Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 7:21). Faith not only moves mountains but must also move believers to act in ways that honor God and bless others. Faith also becomes a true believer’s way of demonstrating thankfulness to God for his amazing grace.

My Prayer…

Holy and Faithful Father, please forgive me for the times I’ve been lazy in my spiritual walk when my faith didn’t prompt me to do good deeds. Help me see the many opportunities for service you give to me each day and empower me to act on those opportunities in ways that bless others and honor you. In Jesus’ holy name, I pray. Amen.
