Prove it!

“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?” James 2:14.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Isaiah 32-35 and James 2.

My actions must back up my Godly claims.

People are quick to characterize believers.  We are on 24/7 watch.

How often does a report of someone fallen mention that they were the leader of a church?  No mention is made that they belong to a health club!

I must be totally committed to God.  I have His Holy Spirit within me.  I must let that Spirit run every part of me full-time.

It is certainly important to realize that believers are still sinners.  We are capable of sin even though we desire not to sin.  It is part of what we are.  Note that we don’t want to sin, but it will happen.  We must be ready to admit our sinfulness and to take ownership of it.

“Lord, I love You.  Help me.  Guide me.  I want my actions to rightly represent You.  I cannot do this without a complete surrender to You.  I do that now.  Take me over, I beg.”

What do our action tell about us?
