Topic: Productive Faith [26/5/2016]
Text: James 2:26
Faith is the spiritual ability God has given to us for us to function and be productive like Him. Scriptures say God has given to everyman that is associated with Him the measure of faith (Romans 12:3), that is, the ability to be productive. The products of our faith are the works we show forth to the world.
James 2 teaches us to put our faith to productive work, which is the outward products of our faith. A faith that is not productive is like a tree that cannot bear fruits. Our works are the fruits of our faith. That is why we must put our faith to work, because it is the fruits that the world wants to see, for the absence of our works of faith, can easily be termed absense of faith.
James 2:26 says "for as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." Our works are the livewire of our faith. We are created to produce good works to the praise of our Father. And these good works are products of our faith. Let men acknowledge your faith through your works. There is no other way to prove your faith other than your works. Let your faith be productive.
Keep winning daily.
Dear loving Father, thank You for the measure of faith You have given to me. My faith is evident through my works. I put my faith to productive use and men see my works, the evidence of my faith, and give You glory, in Jesus name. Amen.
