You start the week off with an amazing worship service, followed by an inspirational message. You’re feeling great. The week is busy, but you even found time for scripture reading. Time for another inspirational message! This might sound like a great week, but James has a bone to pick. Knowing is great and faith is your foundation, but neither of these is complete without action. A Christian armed with scripture who doesn’t use it is a soldier standing still in the middle of a battlefield. Don’t just read scripture and nod, read scripture and do! Action can be scary, but only with both sides of the coin will the Holy Spirit and you be able to achieve God’s good plan.
Questions for further thought:
1. What has the Holy Spirit been calling you to do lately?
2. Does that calling scare you? If so, why?
Challenge: Try small things first. What’s one way you can show God’s love or grace to someone this week? Ask God to show you where to go.
