Daily Devotional for Saturday June 16, 2018

Scripture:

James 2:18 (ESV) “But someone will say, ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

Observation:

Opportunities. You never know when they'll come but if we aren't looking, we can miss them. Most come when we aren't really looking for them. Sometimes they come when we least expect it. Today's verse speaks about showing and demonstrating our faith, and what results when we aren't really looking for ministry opportunities. I was reminiscing about an old friend who has long since passed. I thought about the times when we said we would do this or that, but sadly life got busy and I missed the opportunity. It's like our faith; we can say we have it but if we don't put it into action, we can miss the opportunity to be Jesus’ witness in the life of someone else. Don't miss the opportunity to demonstrate your faith by share His love.
