Exactly what we should be doing having been given the gift of salvation through grace

July 21 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

Scripture
James5:20
let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul rom death and will cover a multitude of sins.
Observation
the book of James asks us to "live" our faith, as we sere dead and having been resurrected into the living spirit .. so faith should be put into action by carrying the word of GOD to all nations, through our Lord Jesus Christ.
we should not be sleepers and just be satisfied with "hearing" the word, but to carry the word to all nations, and do great works as is written in the book of Matthew. And great works simply means to share with others, especially non believers the works that will bring salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.. "His grace is sufficient"
Application
As apostle Paul tells us to "press on toward the prize" ,.. we should put our faith into action, and not be "sleepers" within the body of Christ.
it's about obedience and God's everlasting mercy and grace .. that has been given so freely ... to keep our core values in mind and why we must carry the message to others. it's easy to just associate with fellow christians, but how are we to carry the message of salvation if after gaining spiritual maturity we don't go out into the field and convey this message to non believers.. or those that have faded from the body of Christ ?
Prayer
Heavenly FATHER,
I come in thanksgiving for your awesome mercy and grace and ask for the wisdom to carry your message to all nations .. I pray for the strength to go forward so that everyday I may affect one non believer with your Holy Spirit .. to glorify Your Name.

I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ
Amen
