Day 5: Zeal for Good Works
Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.James 2:18 (KJV)
Reflection: Our faith isn’t just something we say; it’s something we do. It’s demonstrated through our love, our actions, our passion for good works. Genuine faith bears fruit, and this zeal is not just for ourselves but for others too.
Illustration: A tree is known by its fruit; a Christian is known by their works. Just as a healthy tree bears good fruit, a vibrant faith produces good works.
Prayer: Lord, fill me with a zeal for good works that reflects my faith in you. Help me to love and serve others in a way that honors you. Amen.
