James 2:18 (KJV) 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
Oh ye of little faith…how are you really? Are your actions driven by your Faith to grow the kingdom? We’re quick to declare our faith that God will open a door where we reap the blessings. But then nothing happens and we say it just wasn’t Gods will. If it wasn’t Gods will then why did he open the door? You see, the blessings were there but we didn’t reap or harvest them. To reap is to cut and gather, its work. Jesus tells his disciples that the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few.
So you have faith that the door will open but do you have faith to face what’s on the other side? Faith to endure the battle of public opinion? Do you choose tv over reading your bible or social media over a conversation with God or do you feel compassion for others hurting and pray that they be blessed even if it means losing yours? It’s easy to have faith when we think all we have to do is say it.
“Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:38 KJV
