    Higher Everyday Devotional By Pastor W.F Kumuyi, MAY 31, 2017--- FAITH BY WORKS

    FAITH BY WORKS



    BIBLE TEXT:JAMES 2:17
    "Yea so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone" (James 2:17).

    A Christian undergraduate once wrote an examination in a course handled by a Christian lecturer. He did not prepare for the examination so, he had little or no idea of what to write. 

    He managed to write a few things and at the end, wrote some words of faith for the lecturer to read and help him. But he failed that examination because he failed to back up his faith with actions, by studying hard for his examination to avoid malpractice. His faith was not a genuine faith but laziness in disguise. 

    The Bible says, "But without faith we cannot please God" (Hebrews 11:6). However, it also says that he should not eat who does not work. So, there must be a balance since it is the works of our hands that God will bless. Study hard, my child. A lively faith is one that labours. There is dignity in labour. Faith without work is dead. Your faith should motivate you to action. Let your faith be active.

    Challenge: Active faith with labour.
    Prayer: Bless the work of my hands, oh Lord.
    Quote: Your faith will motivate you to action.
    Bible Reading in one Year: James 2:18-26
