“ …faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.”
James 2:17 (NLT Parallel Study Bible)
So it takes more than FAITH to be committed to change in your life. Let me tell you, I know that for sure, my journey was based on FAITH but others of myself had to change to make me the persona I am today.
The book of James provides that need to change I choice three that stands out:
- Stop looking down on others
- Anyone can falter, don’t judge
- Everyone is on a different journey- don’t criticize choices
We must learn to be committed to our FAITH and show ourselves in accordance with our FAITH and not be a sometimer. We need to look at ourselves in the mirror not the outer and see if we are living our lives to what we proclaim.
Yes we are all a work in progress but the question would be when does the work truly begin and what steps must we begin to follow our journey.
I will be looking at the five chapters of James in upcoming biblejournaling and the concepts they teach for us to follow our FAITH.
