Kitchen Table Devotions
What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him?
Where there is faith, there is fruit. There is always evidence of faith. Words are cheap; it’s the walk that counts, that is valuable. Faith without fruit leaves us with fruit that’s without faith. Faith will leave us with the fruit of heaven, but fake faith will leave us with the fruit of here. We say things to make people believe. We need to say things that make God believe. It’s easy to lie to ourselves and others, but we can’t lie to God. Just look around! Jesus said we could judge a tree by its’ fruit. (Luke 6:4) We live in a world of fake faith where we want people to believe a tale rather than the truth. That doesn’t work. That’s not the real stuff. Faith in God will bear the fruit of God in action, attitude, appearance, and anticipation. That’s real stuff. If you’re going to live a lie, be truthful about it, but don’t live a lie, it’s lethal.
