Daily Bread 2/28/2023


Daily Bread – February 28, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) James 2:26 – Just as the body is dead without the spirit; even so, faith without action is dead. Faith is the miracle working power of God living on the inside of us because Jesus lives on the inside of us. The Word of God that produces faith was incarnated into flesh, and the actions of faith were demonstrated for the whole world to see. That same Jesus now lives in us, and from Him continues to flow the mighty deeds of faith and power (2 Corinthians 13:5; Colossians 1:27; John 17:23; 1 John 4:13). James helps us to understand how there is a living faith, and there is a dead faith. A living faith has action. A living faith participates in the things the Word of God describes. The Word of God cannot help but to produce faith in those who will hear (Romans 10:8,17; Galatians 3:3; 1 Thessalonians 2:13). Those who will hear the word of faith will have a corresponding action. There will be a divine power and ability supplied by the Spirit of God to do those things the Word of God demands. However, if we are unwilling to come under the control and domination of the Holy Spirit, then faith will have no action at all and the Word will not be revealed in our lives.
