LIVING FAITH WILL CARRY YOU
Faith is like that. If faith does not issue in action, if it is all alone by itself, it is dead. James 2:17, Barclay
It is very difficult to carry dead faith around. Faith without action is dead. However, living faith will carry you. Living faith demands action.
Romans 10:8-9 says, “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart God raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Again, the word of faith begins in your mouth.
The first act of faith a Christian makes is with his mouth saying, “Jesus is Lord.” The miracle of the new birth is activated by words. There are many important facets of faith, but the speaking part is vital. It seems that Satan wants to stop you before the initial act of faith. When God gets His foot in the door, His power changes everything.
Confession: The word of faith begins with my mouth. My faith is changing my words and as a result, it will change my world!
