Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 2.9.17

Scripture

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?
15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.
16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?
17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.
19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless ?
21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar?
22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.
23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend.
24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.
James 2:14-24

Prayer

Father thank You for another day. Thank You for my life and for all of the ways that You have blessed me. Father I’m working on consistently walking the walk and not just talking the talk. I’m working to be grateful and praise You long before I receive a blessing. Help me to be more committed to and less fearful of this journey. I don’t want to disappoint You Father. I humbly ask for discernment to see all that You want me to see. I thank You now for Your help Father. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

James 2:14-24

Reflection

It’s not good enough to say you believe or that you have faith–are you walking the walk, or just talking? Your actions speaks volumes about you, and your commitment to the Lord. Don’t just say what you think God wants to hear. Start putting in the work that you know He wants to see. If you believe–prove it through your walk each day!
