Wednesday - December 15, 2010 - James 1- 5

S - James 2:17 - In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

O - James is saying that your faith is pretty worthless if you don't do anything with it.

A - You can't earn your salvation, this is true. It's a free gift that God gives that is so precious we could never pay for it. However, once we are saved, it should just follow that we would want to demonstrate that faith. How do we follow the great commission of preaching the gospel to the ends of the earth if we don't also demonstrate that same gospel by being Jesus with skin on to those who would otherwise not believe? Getting saved isn't the end goal - being with Jesus in heaven is. So get up off your duff and do something! Demonstrate your faith by your works. Be a witness and tell people why you do what you do.

P - Lord, I ask for even more opportunities to do your work. Give me the ways and the means, Jesus.
