Day 322 Putting Faith into Working Clothes

Ezek 33:30"As for you, son of man, your people are talking together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, saying to each other, 'Come and hear the message that has come from the LORD.' 31 My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to hear your words, but they do not put them into practice. Their mouths speak of love, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. 32 Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice.

James 2 also drives home the message Faith without works is dead.

I read on the News this morning a woman in Somalia was stoned to death after giving birth to a still born. The Islamists who stoned her charged her with adultery....Not much has changed in 2000 years!
I was grateful that God had chosen to take the baby back to him, he couldn't change the choices of the people stoning.

Faith and works?, what can I do today that changes the direction of someones life for the good?

  1. Verse 32 is a beautiful description of Christian complacency. Ouch.

    May we never hide behind words
    May our words be an expression of our life
