Live Light in 25 Words- Day 24. " Putting Feet on Faith "
" Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works." James 2:26 Q. How important do you think it is that a Christian shows what they believe by the way they act ? This would have to be on the top of the list. People don't always listen to what you say but they do however watch what you do and how you behave, especially if you are flying the Christian flag. We are supposed to be Christ's representatives , it's no good parading around sprouting about His love and acceptance if we are not behaving in that manner ourselves. Our actions will always speak louder than our words. I like to call it " Putting feet on Faith " it's not about going to church meetings and busying ourselves with " programmes ", its about being the hands and feet of Jesus. Jesus walked His faith, talked His faith, lived His faith in everyday life. We should be known as people of integrity, people who go above and beyond for our fellow man. " Faith is dead without good works" let us be mindful that when we put feet on our faith our works are to serve others, to be an example of Him, not to earn us any accolades or to make us right with God. " How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news of peace and salvation...." Isaiah 52:7 Let's be a people of beauty, in the way that we live, in how we speak and act, in how we treat one another, so that the feet on our faith will lead straight to Jesus. Lxx
