James 2:26 NRSV

posted by Laura Jackson -

For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is also dead. (James 2:26 NRSV)What is the Gospel--the Good News--anyway? I believe it can be summed up in three verses: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1); "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16), and "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself" (Luke 10:27).

You and I may believe this and that about God's word and about life in general, but these three statements are incontrovertible! They are true. They don't need to be defended; they only need to be lived. There are people in our world who spend too much of their energy and time defending God's word instead of living it.

Dear God, I have certainly failed to live your word faithfully. May my day be an example of your will. Amen.
