I’ve heard a lot of people say some very good and important things. But just because you can say a lot of good and important things doesn’t mean that you live by the things you say. We can know all the right answers to say in Sunday school, but our lives will show if and how much we mean it.
Take a look at James chapter 2. It talks about how faith is useless and literally dead if you have no works to show what it looks like (verses 14, 17, 20, and 26). Faith is an abstract thing, you can’t see it physically. But you can see what it does. You can see how it works (verses 18-25). What good is all your talking if you don’t DO anything about the subject? (See verses 14-16.)
So in conclusion, I’m not asking you to show me what your faith looks like. I’m asking myself to show others what my faith looks like. Do I look like I believe my God when He speaks?
