James 2:17-19

“In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds. “Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”

• Through your faith you are saved and by your works your faith is proven. If your actions are not changed by your faith, your statement of faith is not valid! Your outlook, your attitude, your joy, your peace, your eternal assurance, and your love for God and others should all show evidence of your faith in God and your faith in His word! Picture a child wanting to jump off the diving board for the first time. The child’s father is waiting in the water with open arms assuring the child that he will keep him safe and that he will love the experience. He is unsure because he has never been committed enough and trusting enough to jump. When he finally builds up enough faith in his father to jump, the experience is phenomenal! YOUR FATHER IS WAITING!

Worrying is evidence of a lack of faith! If you claim that God is sovereign and in control and that He loves you and will work all things out for your good as His word says ( Romans 8:28), there is no room left for worry! Give your whole heart and being to God, change the things He gives you the power to change, and trust Him in everything else! When understanding runs out…. rest in faith!

– Do your actions support your claim of faith in God?
– What actions in your life exhibit your faith in God to others?
– Can others tell by your actions that you are a child of God saved by His grace through Jesus, or do your actions place you “comfortably accepted” by a world of sinners with no questions asked?
– Does your attitude reveal that you are living a joyful life, believing God’s word is true and your future is secure, or do you worry all the time?

Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Mark 6:38-42

“And he said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.” And when they had found out, they said, “Five, and two fish.” Then he commanded them all to sit down in groups on the green grass. So they sat down in groups, by hundreds and by fifties. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing and broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the people. And he divided the two fish among them all. And they all ate and were satisfied.” Jesus will use whatever we have if we are willing to commit it to Him. Are you willing to let Jesus use you for His glory and to further His Kingdom?

Mark 6:36-37

“Send them away to go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.” But he answered them, “You give them something to eat.” And they said to him, “Shall we go and buy two hundred denariiworth of bread and give it to them to eat?” The disciples wanted Jesus to send the people away so they could get something to eat, but Jesus wanted them to feed the people with whatever they had. Jesus used what was available and turned it into what seemed impossible. Often people are more open to what you have to say about what Christ has done in your life, than they are to an invitation to church. Share with them what Christ has done in you and what He can do for them and leave the results up to God. Be a part of Kingdom ministry today.

Mark 5:33-34

“Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” We must lay everything at the feet of Jesus to have peace and joy.

Mark 5:18-20

“As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him. And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled. While your family and friends are often the most difficult to witness to, they are also the ones who know you best. Changes in your life are noticed and will affect those who know you best, but they may not understand the transformation that Jesus has made in your life. Make sure that those you know understand what Jesus has done in your life. Who close to you, who do you see every day that you have not shared the Jesus that you claim with? Who have you told what Jesus has done for you? Who have you told about the mercy He has given you? Who have you told about the mercy He offers to them? Have your friends and family noticed a change

Mark 4:35-41

“On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith? And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”” Notice the tie of fear to lack of faith. If you have accepted Christ as your Savior there is never a reason to fear. Fear is always a result of a lack of faith. Death, illness, money, other people, the future, the past, and uncertainty, are all things that people

Mark 4:18-19

“And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.” There are thorns all around us. Determine now to be fruitful today for God’s glory. May He be the object of our devotion and our continual focus. Are you letting other things in your life choke out the word of God which you have been taught? Is your soil deeper and richer than what is sustaining the thorns?
