Summer thoughts to keep you on the journey: Faith that Works
What does it mean to live a faith that works? It means a faith that is effective for the times we’re in but also one we do something with. Our salvation in Jesus Christ is a gift and so is the new life he gives us. With this in mind, what can we remember to help us let our lights shine?
I could do a whole series of thoughts on this (maybe I will in the fall!) but for now, here are a few things that help us to achieve practical holiness and spiritual maturity. First key is to remember God seeks to touch our consciences and stir our souls to action through the Holy Spirit.
So…STAND with confidence…remember, he who is in your is greater than he who is in world
SERVE with compassion...be engaged with the world around you; pray and look for opportunities
SPEAK with care...watch what you say in terms of content and audience
SUBMIT with contrition…humble yourself before God and HE will lift you up
SHARE with concern…your time and treasure then forgive as God has forgiven us
And most of all pray. Then, when you face trials of all kinds you can consider it pure joy and experience the blessings and crown of life that come with a life living a faith that works.
