THE TRUE FAITH

James 2:14
14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but does not have works? Can this kind of faith save him? [NET]

You cannot say you are alive and there would be no physical proof of life. At least, you would breathe. You cannot say you have faith and there is no manifestation of your faith in the way you live. Just like there is the true kind of Faith, there is also the counterfeit kind of faith. We know this faith by the way people who claim to have faith live their lives.

Many people have claimed to have faith in the Lord Jesus but are still exactly the way they were when they were unbelievers. Today’s Bible text shows us that that kind of faith they claim to have will not save them. That kind of faith is counterfeit and not the Faith handed over by our Lord (see Jude 1:3).

I have observed that one of the first things faith in your heart will affect is the way you talk and the way you respond to God’s word. If there is real faith in your heart, it will affect the way and the things you say. You will no longer say words that are characterized by faithlessness. A man who truly has faith in God is always conscious of God’s sovereign presence. And this affects the way he lives his life.

As you go into today, remember that the works that faith produces in your life are works of Love. Let the words you say and the things you do show that you have faith in the living God. Remember also that you are not alone. God is watching over you jealously.

Prayer: Father, please help me walk in the true faith and never in a counterfeit one. I ask for grace to always set you before my eyes (see Acts 2:25). In Jesus name, Amen.
