James 2:14 (NET) What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but does not have works? Can this kind of faith save him?
Claiming to be alive comes with breathing, a clear sign of life. Similarly, faith isn’t just a word; it shows in how you live. But it’s important to note, there’s genuine faith and then there’s a fake version. You can spot it by observing the way people who profess faith conduct their lives.
Many say they have faith in the Lord Jesus, yet their lives mirror their unbelieving days. Today’s Bible text points out that this kind of faith won’t save them. It’s a counterfeit, not the genuine faith imparted by our Lord (see Jude 1:3).
One of the initial effects of genuine faith in your heart is seen in your words and your response to God’s Word. Real faith influences what you say and how you say it. You’ll no longer speak in ways that lack faith. A person with genuine faith is always aware of God’s supreme presence, and this shapes their lifestyle.
Remember, the actions that spring from faith are acts of love. Let your words and deeds reflect your trust in the living God. Also, know you’re never alone. God is keeping a watchful eye on you.
