Are You a Hand Sitter?

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead James 2:17 New International Version

Unfortunately too many Christians mistakenly believe that once they accept Christ as their Savior all they have to do is sit on their hands and wait for Him to carry them to Heaven.

Nothing is further from the truth.

We are created and commanded to do good works.

So my question to you is: are you a hand sitter?

Christians are called to take action, not be spectators. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Another mistake too many Christian have is believing in the hit and miss technique.

That is where they believe they will just go out and do good works until they find the place where they believe God wants them to be.

That is saying that they do not depend upon God to lead them to where He wants them to be.

 

This causes a lot of wasted time and is arrogant. It is saying that you are depending upon your own wisdom instead of being depend upon and obedient to Gods guidance in your life.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-10 New International Version

Have thy tools ready, God will provide the work. Charels Kingsley

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Shepard) guide me to the time and place You have wisely predetermined to serve You in the manner You have so graciously prepared for me your humble obedient child. I beseech You in the name of Your most obedient child who obeyed Your calling in His life all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. And even our good works are not of our doing. They too are a gift we can share with others. They are a result of our gratitude for what God has done for us.
