Those who have gone before us and have lead by example are an inspiration.
Resisting evil, speaking for and protecting those who can’t speak for themselves, caring for the oppressed and downtrodden. These are attributes of a Christian with a faith that is alive and well.
James 2:17-26 is easy to understand. Faith without works is dead. Faith without works is useless.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was an example to us, in modern history, of a person whose faith was not useless and was not dead. He acted.
I’ve recently started this devotional hosted by Bible Gateway. I would encourage each of you to join me.
