“So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.”
Faith is essential to our walk and relationship with Jesus. There are times when faith fills in the gap in the things we do not understand. However, our actions and deeds still matter. We believe your goodness can’t get you into heaven just as your badness cannot get you out. Once we have said yes to Jesus, it does not make everything easy, but we do have a model for what our lives should look like. When we lean into him each day, he helps us become more like him. The world should recognize us as Christ followers because our lives will be marked by fruitfulness.
Lord, thank you for your gift of salvation and free gift of grace. I am so grateful that my actions do not disqualify me from your love. Help me to be more like you. I want my life to be marked by your grace. Amen.
