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. James 2:16-18
“My children, Have faith and be sure of the things you hope for and certain of what you don’t see, but understand that your life will not change unless your conduct does. Your actions will show your commitment to me. Your good deeds towards one another will prove your love for Me and your obedience to My Word. Faith and actions work together in one accord bearing fruit and bringing witness to the gospel. Be sincere in all you do and do not boast and bring glory to your God because everything comes from Me. Keep the royal law in Scripture which is to “Love your neighbor as yourself” and the blessings will turn back to you.” This is the Word of the Lord.
