Is not the fulfilment of faith, action? In the above scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indy had to make a "leap of faith." So Indy had to have faith that he could walk across that endless chasm without falling to his death. But what good would his faith have been if he had not acted on it?
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?
~ James, James 2:14
In the same way, we who have placed our faith in Jesus, must act on our belief. If we believe in our heart that Jesus is Lord, and confess this with our mouths, then we have been saved from Death and damnation through Jesus and are given Life. He has transformed us into a new creation as our old self has died with Jesus and our new self has been raised to Life, also with Jesus. We are also children of God the Father, Brothers and Sisters of Jesus, and as such, co-heirs with Jesus to God's Glory! We have also received the Spirit of God to live within us, to give us council when we listen for it, allowing us two way communication directly with God!
This is some pretty powerful stuff that the Bible tells us about those who place their faith in Jesus. The author of Hebrews gives us an overview of several people who's faith was put into action. If we act on our faith in Jesus, as the first century church did, would we not become a mighty force for good in this world again? How about you? Are you willing to put your faith into action?
