PARAPHRASE IT : James 2:17-18 [NIV] In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds
MY PARAPHRASE: Consider this, faith w/o action, isn’t faith! Look at it this way, “you have heart, and I have hands” Is your heart worth anything if you aren’t using your hands, because when I use my hands – you see my heart!
APPLYING THESE VERSES TO MY LIFE: My faith can’t just be something I believe, it’s not a noun, it’s a verb. Belief is in the doing!
May my works outweigh my words each and every day.
