Faith Is Action – In Touch Devotional with Dr Charles Stanley 4 May 2021
Read Today’s Dr Charles Stanley In Touch Devotional for Tuesday 4th May 2021
TOPIC: FAITH IS ACTION [Scripture Union SU Daily Guide 5 May 2021 – God Of Order]
SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 11:7-16
Faith is often thought of as a thing we have—a belief in something or someone. But in the Scriptures, faith is more than a passive possession—it’s a firm confidence that results in action. In today’s passage, an action follows every mention of faith. Noah prepared an ark, Abraham obeyed without knowing where he was going, and Sarah confidently anticipated the son God promised.
Instead of sitting back, believers should count on God’s promises and act accordingly, as did the men and women listed in Hebrews 11. The Lord accomplished amazing feats through their lives when they believed Him and moved out in obedience. Like a muscle, faith grows the more we put it into action. In this way, believers strengthen their trust in God and His promises, even when they don’t live long enough to see the fulfillment in their lifetime.
Are you acting on your faith in God and His Word? When you see a command or warning in Scripture, do you obey it? Are you letting biblical truths about God’s character and power shape your thinking and responses? If so, your faith is growing strong.
Bible in One Year: 1 Chronicles 10-12
