“For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.” (James 2:26)
An animated being, that is what many people are. Have you ever wondered why the fascination with zombies? Here you have it: the walking dead. Many live as though they weren’t living. The just exist. The Lord awakens our spirit and makes us truly alive. Come then and see the difference in one who is living their faith versus one who is just going through the motions of this life.
You know where I too fall into the trap of just going through the motions, Lord. Help me to be alive in You by living out this faith that You have given me. Guide me according to Your purposes to see and better understand that You do not ask me to do the impossible but simply live into the faith that You have given me. Lead me, Lord, according to Your purposes to know and do these things.
Lord Jesus, as You walked, You taught the disciples. You healed people when You came into their town. You fed thousands after teaching them. You did things along the way. Help me to understand that You are calling me to be a person of action and not just hear or read about these things and only think about them. Help me to have a living faith that is expressed in all I think, say, and do. Amen.
