Originally if you read the title, you will be reminded of one verse in the Bible. And yes, it was taken from there, it is James 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? It’s like you need a job, and you say you have faith you will have a job soon, but you don’t do anything to get it, you just sit around sleeping, rather than to send your resumes to companies or asking some friends if they have some infos, it will result nothing. I remember stories in the Bible when Jesus was on earth, He healed many sick people and said, because of your faith, you are healed. But did you notice that those people did some effort to meet Jesus inside the crowd, and took the risk whatever it would take? They just thought they must meet Jesus. And they got what they wanted.
I like the quote from Ellen White :
“Faith and works go hand in hand; they act harmoniously in the work of overcoming. Works without faith are dead, and faith without works is dead. Works will never save us; it is the merit of Christ that will avail in our behalf. Through faith in Him, Christ will make all our imperfect efforts acceptable to God.”
