In the book Faith Acts, Dillon and I wrote about our work in the homeless community through Relevant Hope, and we focused on James 1:22 as a guiding portion of Scripture that helped us put our faith in action. We truly believe that those who are in Christ will live out their faith both in personal piety and expression of love toward others. Good works shouldn’t be done out of a sense of duty or a begrudging attitude. Intent is just as important as obedience, and Jesus spoke to that in his parable of the two brothers (Matthew 21:28-32).
You should buy and read Faith Acts: A Provocative Call to Live What You Believe.
I’m not talking about the fact that I want you to buy the book Dillon and I wrote, but I think you actually should buy the book and then read it and then do something more with your faith that just knowing about it.
My desire to write Faith Acts happened because of a conversation over a cup of coffee. I’m fairly certain all great things in life begin this way, and I hope Faith Acts joins the ranks of great things that happened.
