September 16

Our mighty God has given each of us a portion of something useful for His kingdom. What are you doing with yours? When you accepted Jesus as your Savior, the Holy Spirit went to work encouraging you to get involved. He gave you the feeling of gratitude and an overwhelming desire to give back to the One who saved you. Your salvation is not something that you place upon a shelf and dust every once in a while, there are responsibilities that go along with it. We need to stop waiting for someone else to do the work of the kingdom and get out and do our share. Contrary to what most people think, church is not a spectator sport, it's a community! We are a family! We must all get involved. In my family, everyone had to work! If you weren't busy cleaning the house or pulling weeds, or doing some other chore, you had better be sick! So, just as your mom or dad might say, "Get your butt off the couch and get to work!"

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? James 2:14 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead. James 2:26
