TODAY MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR WEDNESDAY 9TH JUNE 2021 WRITTEN BY PASTOR D. K. OLUKOYA
TOPIC: FAITH WITHOUT WORKS (I)
Fire Scripture: James 2:14-16
MFM Daily Devotional Outline
The pivot of our relationship with the Almighty God is the concluded work of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. His resurrection is the seal of our sonship while faith is the cornerstone of our lifestyle in the kingdom. Everything in the kingdom of God is driven by the power of faith. No child of God can please Him without faith.
In Heb. 11:6, the Bible says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Faith, simply put means absolute trust in God. It means accepting and believing who God says He is. It means having confidence in the truth that God can do what He has promised to do.
Faith is a confident belief that our God can never lie and He can never fail. Faith is believing in the totality of the declared counsel of God as entrenched in the Holy Bible, which is the Christian manual of operation. Faith is working side by side with the awesome God without worrying or caring how things will work out.
MFM Daily Devotional 9 June 2021 – Faith Without Works (I)
This biblical faith is activated in the believer through the word of God: “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God” (Rom. 10:17). However, faith must be accompanied by action. You need not fold your arms thinking that things will just happen. You need to take appropriate steps to back up your faith in God. You must demonstrate your faith by swinging into action.
For example, if you have been praying for employment, then go out and search for jobs. You should also acquire relevant academic qualification and certifications as well as relevant soft skills, hand skills and job interview skills that will earn you your dream job.
But if you only pray and pray without searching for anything to do, then your faith is without works. May the Lord grant you understanding, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
James 2:26 – “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also”
Passive faith is like a gun without a bullet.
Your faith shall not fail you, in the name of Jesus.
