5.) Fifth, YOU NEED TO SERVE OTHERS IN HIS NAME.
We can say we have faith, but as Christ-followers the true evidence that we have faith is evidenced by what we do, not simply what we say. We are challenged to be salt and light in the world, to make the world a better place by using the abilities, gifts, skills and talents God has given us to serve others. When you serve others in the name of The LORD you’re being your best and you’re helping others to be their best.
James 2:14-18 (ESV) – What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. 18 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.
Philippians 2:12 (NLT2) – Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.
Galatians 5:13 (NLT2) – For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.
