“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.” James 2:17-18
James reminds us that shouting we have faith is not enough. The world needs to see us jump out of the boat, just as Peter did (Matthew 14), and show our faith by what we do. In other words, we need to interrupt our regular routines and step out into the unknown to experience God anew.
Once we jump out in faith and out of our comfort zones, we must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. Learning from Peter, we certainly don’t want to look down and begin to sink.
Today, walk away from the routine and show your unbelievable faith in God. It’s time to jump out of the boat to accomplish those new goals! You will prove you trust the Lord by the leaps of faith you take.
1-2-3 . . . jump!
