Vs 14: Dear brethren, what's the use of saying you have faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't save anyone.
- because we believe,
- because we serve the one true God,
- because we have been saved by grace,
- because of our FAITH in Christ who died for us, we should do good works.
We should serve others, because of our faith in Jesus Christ.
We should help out, go the extra mile, be available for the things of Christ - because of our faith in Him.
Its not enough to just believe in God -
Vs 19 says: Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.
We show our faith by doing good deeds in His name.
Like Vs 26 says: Just as the body is dead without a spirit, so also faith is dead without good deeds.
My encouragement to you is to look for opportunities to do good works. A helping hand, an act of kindness, serve another, a good listener, whatever it is - do it as unto the Lord - because of your faith.
