Someone once wrote that it is not sufficient to have faith in Jesus. It is also required to act. The writer wrote that when we ask for something, we should have faith that we will receive it, otherwise, we will not. He also says that sometimes we don’t receive what we want because we ask out of selfishness. We should also resist what is evil, because if we don’t, then we become the devil himself. He suggests we listen more and talk less. And that we have to be careful what we say, because it can offend others. The writer also wrote that if we say we believe something, we should practice it, not just say we believe. Like when we see ourselves in the mirror but don’t pay attention to what we see and forget how we look. This includes believing in Jesus. He then says that what pleases God is to visit orphans and widows. We should not exclude anyone just because he or she is poor. The rich will eventually rotten. Everyone should be treated the same. Mercy triumphs over judgment. The writer then dares to say that without work, faith is useless, like the body without a spirit is useless. We can say we believe, like evil people can, but that doesn’t prove anything. We are justified by both faith and works. The writer emphasizes that we must recognize God in everything we do, not just rely on our own agenda. We should be patient, honest, take care and pray for each other.
Who dared to write this message? His name was James, the brother of Jesus. I summarized it above. And it has inspired me to act on my faith some more. Thank you for reading.
