“He creates each of us by Christ Jesus, to join Him in the work He does, the good work He has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.” (Eph. 2:10 MSG)
We are not saved by work or deeds, but we are definitely called to them and expected to act. In Evangelical circles, I fear we’ved used the truth of “saved by faith alone” as an excuse to by lazy…to just exist…and not respond. The apostle James was right – faith expresses in good works. Inactive, just existing faith…is it even faith at all?
It’s time for the Body of Christ to embrace more than just the role of mouth…it’s time to be His hands and feet as well.
