1-14-16 Faith in Action

faith in action

14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

James 2:14-16 KJV

A couple poor as dirt with hungry child:

The husband says, “I’ve faith we’ll get some food.”

The wife replied, “O fool! You’ve got me riled!

Go get a job! We can’t eat attitude!”

Professing faith is easy; say the word,

But if your faith is real then it will show.

A kindness given first was faith that stirred.

When grace meets gratitude you can’t lie low.

When Jesus said “Your faith has made you whole,”

He knew that she believed that by her touch.

If she had not had faith both heart and soul,

She wouldn’t have reached out His cloak to clutch. (Matthew 9:20-22)

Declaring faith won’t keep you warm and filled.

Put action to those words and be fulfilled.

REMEMBER: For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26)

11-3-15 Fight the Good Fight

fight

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

1 Timothy 6:12 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The moment you professed that Christ was Lord,

Professed your faith to God and man alike,

The Spirit came upon you like a sword

And Satan came against you stone and spike.

Do not forget the enemy’s intent

To twist the mind of man against the Word.

You are a soldier from the Savior sent

To do the will of God with faith secured.

You’ve victory in Jesus, called to fight,

Delivering the gospel to the lost,

And love the Lord and men with all your might,

And keep the faith whatever be the cost.

Now Fight! Through Grace eternal life is yours.

A solider gird in faith will long endure.

3-13-15 Matters of the Heart

honesty

If you feel love express it openly,

For it’s a precious gem that must be shared,

But love that’s locked away lives brokenly

Just like a bird that’s caged too long turns scared.

Be honest with your feelings all the time

And you won’t have to worry what to say;

The matters of the heart are so sublime,

One little lie in love leads truth astray.

The love you have for God and Christ and man

Should be more than the words you can express.

Beyond the tongue are deeds and truth that can

Reveal more than a million words profess.

Hypocrisy in love destroys the soul;

If this is you, pray Jesus make you whole.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Let love be without dissimulation.

Romans 12:9 KJV
