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.”

Matthew 4:21-22

“Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.” When Jesus calls you to follow Him, your obedience to follow Him should be immediately. Whether He is calling you for the first time, to give your life over to Him, or you have been a Christian for a long time, do not delay in obeying the One who loves you and died for you. His love never fails, and His path is always right.

Matthew 4:18-20

“While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.” The correct response to Jesus is, “Yes Lord”, and the correct time to respond is immediately. God will never tell you to get your life right and then come to me, but He does say to come to Him, and He will make your life right. A calling from God has one correct response, immediate obedience. Dear Lord, may we walk with You daily, remaining in the center of Your will, so that we recognize where You are leading us. May our only answer be, “Yes Lord”, and may we never delay in being obedient. Amen

Matthew 4:10

“Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan. For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’”” There is a huge difference in knowing about God, and walking with Him. Is God your priority, or do you just mix Him into your life when it is convenient? Do you just know about God, or do you walk with Him daily?

Matthew 4:7

“Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”” We have no right to put God to a test. When we understand who God is, and who we are, the only correct response is humility.

Matthew 4:3-4

“And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”” If you say you are seeking God daily, but you are not consistently in His Word, then I challenge that God is not your priority. God’s Word will change your life by guiding every step you take. Get to know His Word and let it guide your every step. The application of His Word to your life will bring peace and joy that you cannot find anywhere else. If you are just feeding your body with food, you are just existing, but if you are feeding your soul with God’s Word, you are living. Make a vow today to truly “live” the rest of your life. We try not to miss many meals, but how often do we skip getting into the Word? Maybe that is why we often feel spiritually malnourished. How much time do you spend meditating on God’s Word, versus thinking about your next meal? Do you need to adjust

Matthew 4:1

“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” The Holy Spirit may lead us to a place where we will be tempted, but He will not leave us there alone. Overcoming temptation strengthens us. 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.”
