Faith Produces Works

A true sacrament is not a mere creed, or ordinance, or form, but it is a life of service to God and to man. The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.

There must be a practical outworking of our faith here in this present world, or it will never endure the world to come. The Pharisees majored on show but minored on service. We need fewer words and more charitable works; less palaver and more pity; less repetition of creed and more compassion.

Is your faith life producing fruit? This sermon from Billy Graham may help you grow deeper.


Prayer for the day

Talk so often drowns out the cries for help—I am guilty of this, Lord. I would worship You in everything I do. Extend my hands with Your mercy, Lord.

    Please join me in prayer for President Trump. I pray for him whenever I talk to our Lord. He sends the comforter. I also believe that God has a hand on America. I’m just wondering during the year of Jubilee 2017, will God come for His church?

    My Lord Jesus blesses me every time I am able to help someone and the same happens when someone helps me! Service to God is a wonderful blessing! PRAISE the LORD!

    There is great joy to be had, by seeing the smile of a lonely soul, when you take a moment to pay a visit. Your heart will lift with theirs.
