James 2:14-17 talks about faith without doing some type of action, not really being faith at all.
Faith with nothing with it, is just idle words. It's cheap talk. As I get older I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to expect very little from words and more from doing from works, from working. In other words, no one has to shower me with fancy words. I'm more impressed with the evidence and the proof behind their mouth. I'm more impressed with people putting up or shutting up. Placing their money where their mouth is. Otherwise it's just mere words that don't help anybody. Just words and nothing else.
The one thing about writing this blog is that the expectations I put on myself are pretty high. When I'm feeling tired I think about the things I write and I get a little burst of adrenaline that I must continue on. I must never stop and I won't. You see, I know what the devil tried to do my family and I know what he tried to do to others' families too. And every time I think about my faith and my trust in the God I serve, I know what He God did to turn things around. I know what He did concerning all the things He promised.
Consequently, because of all of that and much more, I chose to rise and shine. Thus, faith without my works won't happen, because what God has birth -- it's alive and kicking. That means you will see the proof in the pudding and I will be confident in that, even if nobody else is.
