We’ve heard that Faith without works (or deeds) is dead.
But what does that really mean?
If faith can be dead, how can we ignite it and make it come Alive?
Our actions (deeds) allow our belief in God to live.
Deeds are the lifeblood of faith. They give our faith a heartbeat, a living force, an ability to experience life.
I felt God share something profound with me about the characteristics of living things.
– Are Sensitive
– Require Nutrition
When applied to deeds being the life force of faith, I believe that:
– Deeds make your faith move; breathe; sensitive to your environment (so you can respond accordingly); grow and develop; produce fruit in your life and more faith; remove things that are toxic to your faith and life; and Deeds feed your faith.
It is what we do (deeds) that maintains stability in our lives.
It is our actions that give life to Faith. And it is Faith that Pleases God.
