Faith Requires ACTION

Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense? James 2:17 MSG

How can you take these words from James and sum them up?  Maybe it would sound something like this: You can’t just “talk the talk,” you have to “walk the walk.”

Simply put, faith requires action.

What we do demonstrates what we think sometimes is good enough. If I come to church, shake hands with everyone, act interested in the sermon, isn’t that good enough. However when the offering is being taken, do I pay my tithes or just put in a few dollars to be seen putting money in the plate.

When the sermon is being preached do I follow the message in the bible I am carrying, or does it sit nicely beside me or on my lap? With electrical devices today,  you can even look up the chapter and verse if you can’t find your way in your bible. When you’re ask to help with a job in your church, you make an excuse .

But what if you decided to place action in your faith, by doing these steps:

1. Trusting God to do what he promised to do, by paying your tithes, and receiving the promise from God; “Try me, see if I will not bless you.” Malachi 3

2. Having whatever device to not only receive the word, but to take notes to place application in my life.

3. Be aggressive and ask for opportunities to serve in the church you presently attend.

When we are participants in our “faith” we can also encourage others that have walked where we “used to walk.” We can count on God doing his part will you do your part.”


Want to grow in your faith? Then do something.  Action is required.

I am a retired Army Officer with 30 years service. I am a man who has been saved by grace, and understands that without God --we can do nothing. I have surrendered my life to follow Him and be used by Him to bring others into his presence as he directs. I surrender my heart, hands and feet to his purpose, I have gotten out of the boat to follow Him....hope others will come too.
