Faith by itself, it does not have works, is dead. James 2:17. In James, we are clearly told that faith without works is dead. It does not mean that works will result in faith, but that good works will affirm that our faith is real. It is easy to say we believe in God, but only our works can prove the truthfulness of our words. Abraham was an example of this. He didn’t just talk about his faith; he demonstrated it by his willingness to give up his only son in obedience to God (James 2:21-24; see Genesis 22:1-8.) And Isaac was spared. Today, how can we actively demonstrate our love for God and trust Him? I encourage you to step out in your faith when the Lord calls upon you. Have a wonderful day!
