“What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?”
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
We are reminded that faith without works is dead. In our prayers let us remember a little elbow grease called works needs to be applied as well. May The Lord hear and supply each of our needs and may we do the work that is necessary to accomplish our goal.
God Bless You,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
James 2:14, 17-20 NLT
