[CF Devotionals] 2012-09-08 - Faith in Action

"Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth."--1 John 3:18 (NIV)

"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?"--James 2:14 (NIV)

Have your ever heard the expression, "Talk is cheap"? These two quotes from John and James expressed the same sentiment to the early Christians. They apply to us today, as well. They tell us that we are to express our faith through our actions. We are to feed the hungry, visit the lonely, sit with the sick, and clothe the needy. These are just a few examples of how we can put our faith to work. Every day, we encounter opportunities to serve others. Our love for Christ is demonstrated by our efforts to help others. How can you show your faith today?
