SAVING FAITH!

James 2:14 – Devotional

James 2:14

“What does it profit, my brothers and sisters, though a person say they have faith, and do not have works? Can just saying they have faith save them?”

In my storage bank of childhood memories I recall playground disputes that arose when someone would boast about what they were able to accomplish. Perhaps you also can recall such confrontations. Often the conflict would end when the one making the boast would be confronted with: “Put up or shut up!”

Perhaps you would not be guilty of such vulgar talk, but I must confess that I seem to feel that attitude when I listen to people, great or small who make loud boasts, but never seem to live up to their own boasting.

Now I want to be quick to state that we never attain eternal salvation as a result of our good works, but being born-again must of necessity display works of righteousness.

If your walk with the Lord is not exemplified by a life that reflects His image, you need to check your spiritual birth certificate. Are you truly in possession of saving faith? It is only to be attained by being born again! Read John 3:16 and make it your own!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
