Happy Happy Friday!
Follow You by Leeland is one of those songs that I sing and desire to live out. But, when I dig deep into my heart, I find that I fall short from being that selfless follower of Jesus. James chapter two comes to mind:
Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”
Beloved friends, I pray that we may be a people who are focused not only on our own needs but the needs of others. Let's follow Jesus into our homes, into our work places, into our schools, into our super markets, into our cities, our states, our countries and into the outermost parts of the world and the gutter-most parts of the this earth! The hurting, the needy, the weary, the weak, the broken, the poor, the lost, the dying are all in need of Jesus.Let's put feet to our faith, be vessels of hope and servants to all.You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?
Follow You, Leeland
