Project Devo – Day 22

We are what we do, not what we say we’ll do. This is bedrock for Christ followers. Although our unearned salvation is a gift from God, our ability to give back to the Lord is based on the good deeds we perform for others. We must be advocates for good. We must be creators of good. We must serve as the hands and feet of the Father here on Earth, and reach out to others in love, compassion, and goodness.

“So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.” – James 2:17 NLT
