(James 2:14-17)”My brothers, what good is it for someone to say that he has faith if his actions do not prove it? Can that faith save him? Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don’t have enough to eat. What good is there in your saying to them, ‘God bless you! Keep warm and eat well!’ – if you don’t give them the necessities of life? So it is with faith: if it is alone and includes no actions than it is dead.

(James 2:14-17)”My brothers, what good is it for someone to say that he has faith if his actions do not prove it?  Can that faith save him?  Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don’t have enough to eat.  What good is there in your saying to them, ‘God bless you!  Keep warm and eat well!’ – if you don’t give them the necessities of life?  So it is with faith: if it is alone and includes no actions than it is dead.

It becomes quite clear that we must act out our faith.  Isn’t it worth trying!  To you there may come the same wonderful changes that have come to other men and women all down through the years.

Your life may be guided by Christ… Your problems may be solved by His wisdom… Your weakness may be burned into strength by His help… Your struggles may become – victories by His grace… Your sorrows may be turned into joy by His comfort.

And you too, may have that fellowship with the risen Christ.  Indeed, you will not believe the fact of the Resurrection for yourself until the living Christ lives in your own heart.  When you have in your own life that sense of His nearness and His power – ah, then, you too will know!
