“What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,' and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. But someone may well say, 'You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.'”— James 2:14-18
How will we respond to Christ’s offer to follow Him? Will we lay our lives down before Him as a living sacrifice? Will we give Him a little of our heart to appease our consciences but ultimately live how we want? Will we completely ignore His love and choose to live in rebellion? Let us all remember the cost Christ paid for our redemption as we choose our path in life.
