Faith that works

We are living in a time where people like to do a lot of talking without any follow up. We celebrate people for doing the least amounts of charity because it is rare that we will consider the needs of others.

Faith Without Works Is Dead   14  What  does it  profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?  15  If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,  16  and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what  does it  profit?  17  Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

Faith Without Works Is Dead

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

However, the Scriptures are clear that we are not to send others away in their times of need and destitution. Yet, we feel as if we need to be celebrated when we do that which is required of us. 

This morning I celebrate Billionaire tech investor Robert F. Smith — the founder and chief executive of Vista Equity Partners. Smith will pay off the student loans of the entire 2019 graduating class of Moorehouse students. He blessed these 400 students with a head start, only requesting that they do not forget this blessing and pay it forward. 

As a believer in Christ and a preacher, I give glory and honor to God for men like this, I never heard of Robert F. Smith until yesterday, yet I’m grateful to be Introduced to him this way, he was willing to be an example of what it means to share with others. As the Scriptures have taught me that Christ gave us everything that we may inherit all things, yet many believers are so selfish and judgmental as it relates to others outside of our church members, families and friends.  

HE DID THIS FOR STRANGERS...

We forget that we were Spiritually empty and bankrupt, yet God has allowed us to tap into His limitless account as joint heirs with Christ. Now we have access to God through prayer and the ability to think on a Spiritual level. I don’t know if Mr. Smith is a follower of Christ or not, however, I do know that these types of acts are not happening everyday on this level causing it reported and recognized as mainstream news.
