Really? How could faith be lonely? Well, check it out, “Faith that doesn’t lead us to do good deeds is ALL ALONE and dead! (James 2:17) Abraham had great faith. How do we know that? We know it because his faith was visible. When God told Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, he packed up everything he needed and headed out… including Isaac. As you know, his faith + his action, not only saved Isaac, but he also received God’s approval. Abraham’s faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete. I say it like this, “Faith is what you DO with what you DON’T have or see.”
If you were at my house I hope you could SEE my faith. When I get out of bed each morning I stumble and wobble on my shaky legs to the bathroom… with Margie close by just in case. I read my Bible, listen to worship music, and most of all, listen for that ONE voice; the Holy Spirit. Throughout my day I type with my feet, writing books, editing and publishing books, and typing these devotions. I watch FoxNews, The Price Is Right, and YouTube videos that make me laugh ’till I cry; because laughter is the best medicine. I work best late at night, and when I go to bed, I listen to my own preaching messages so I won’t forget the call of God on my life… but mostly because the Lord told me to.
Now, some may think, instead of God’s grace, I’m doing all these “works” trying to earn my healing. No, in fact it’s the opposite. God’s Grace has been so good to me that I BELIEVE I already HAVE my healing, so I’m putting action to my faith. I’m expressing my trust in God and thanking Him in advance. Don’t leave your faith by itself. Add some action or some good deeds to your faith. Not to “get” something, but to celebrate what you “got” by faith.
I hope this blesses everyone who reads it.
In Him, Pastor Kevin Kinchen
