The Daystar Devotional 2005-02-03

“. . . his faith was made complete by what he did.”  (James 2: 22b NIV)

Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,

Faith is not only a talk; it’s also a walk. Many Christians today say they have faith when all they really have is empty words. Unless you back your words up with action, you don’t have faith.

For example, suppose you say you believe that God will supply all of your needs, but you don’t do something to earn a living. You don’t have faith.

Suppose you say you believe that God will help you pass your college course, but you don’t study. You don’t have faith.

Suppose you say you believe that God will restore your marriage, but you don’t show kindness toward your spouse. You don’t have faith.

Faith is love in action. In fact, the Bible says that faith works by love (Galatians 5: 6). So faith will always be accompanied by action.

If you’ve been thinking you have faith but aren’t getting an answer to what you’re believing for, check your walk. Is it truly a walk, or is it just talk?  Are you “doing” your faith or just “talking” it?

The answer to that question will determine whether or not you receive an answer to your prayer.

Your sister in Christ,

Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
