Active Faith

1477724400In our Bible verses today, James encourages us to have an active faith. Believing in something is not enough. We need to do something to show that faith.
Abraham had faith in God. But when God told Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham was willing to do that. “So you see that people are made right with God by what they do. They cannot be made right by faith alone” (verse 24).
For a long time, I did not know what active faith was. Then I was challenged to quit my job, leave my pets with family members and move to Deaf Missions to become part of their training program. My faith in God and His plan for my life led me to do something.
Don’t be like the people that James was talking about — those people who believe in God and His Word and then do nothing. Ask God to help you put your faith into action today.
