FAITH

KATHRYN NEUMANN

James 2:17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

As Christians, if we say that we have faith in Christ and that we love him, our actions should show it. Yet as we all know too well, our actions don’t always follow our words. God is sold out in his love for you. He’s proved it when He sent His son to die in our stead (John 3:16). He wants to be in a relationship with you!

Believing in God should change everything about our lives. Putting our belief to action is life-altering, and not only in the hope that it gives us for the future, but also in the way God’s presence can change our lives now.

If you believe in Jesus, if you love him, go and do things for his kingdom. Reach out to your friends at school, pray for them, volunteer at a soup kitchen, and help the poor and the needy. Let’s show Jesus how much we love him and want to follow him!

QUESTION 1. Are there any ways that your actions aren’t living up to your words when it comes to your faith in Christ?
QUESTION 2. How can your faith play an active role in your school, family and friendships?
CHALLENGE: We challenge you to take a stand with Jesus today and make your belief in Christ an active part of everything you do!
