Faith Without Works Is Dead


images     Recently, I was watching my neighbor shoveling snow, which got me thinking.  We’ve talked to him quite a few times.  During holidays, we’ve shared food and small gifts with him.  We have given tracts numerous times.  He knows we are believers.  He sees us going to and from church; but is our faith real to him, or is it all just words?

While watching, my thoughts went to, should I go out and help?  I didn’t really FEEL like it, but surely he could use some help with shoveling.  So I went out.

We worked together, and we chatted–not about spiritual things, just day to day things.  But it built our relationship further.

It was the right thing to do.  God had nudged me with His still small voice that I could’ve chosen to obey or ignore.  This time, I made the right choice.  I’m still learning that “…faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” (James 2:17)

So, I’m trying harder to look and listen for these types of opportunities.  I want to show others that my faith is REAL.  And too, Lord willing, one day open up an opportunity to share my faith and be a witness to bring others to my Lord and Savior.
