Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well, keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
Prayer and faith are key ingredients for change—but we still have work to do. We
are called to impact the world for Christ and bring others to a saving
knowledge of Jesus Christ. You can do this by preaching the Gospel message and
by helping those in need. By doing so, you show Christ’s love for others.
Doing something to create greater good in our world is an outward expression of
our inward faith. We can effect change in the world because of our faith.
Though works aren’t how we are saved, works are how we serve the God who has
1 Corinthians 3:12-14 teaches us that on the Day of Judgment, Christ is going to
test how we built on His foundation. He’s going to show our work for what it
is, test it and show its quality.
You do not know when your last day on earth will be. You do not know when you
will lose the opportunity to labor in God’s fields. So go out and spread the
Good News each day!
