Faith and Works

The very moment you separate body and spirit, you end up with a corpse. Separate faith and works and you get the same thing: a corpse. (James 2:26 The Message)

Tomorrow, a group of people from Vista Community Church Vista Churchare heading into the city of Orlando to help meet the needs of the people of the city. We call it “Vista Serves.”

Do we in any way think doing these things will save us? Emphatically, No. But are we commanded to serve? Emphatically, Yes. The living, breathing church is people, serving other people. Bring a cup of cold water in the name of Jesus.

I don’t have any idea what my family and I will be doing tomorrow, but I know that by doing it, we are living out our faith, proclaiming the name of Jesus by what we do.
