The Oars of Faith!
Taken from: James Chapter 2 verses 14-26
Faith without deeds is like a row boat. The author of James asks us "what good is it if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?" My study of these scriptures tells us that faith has 3 characteristics:
Faith is Active(vs. 17)
Faith is believing(vs. 18-19)
Faith is visible(vs. 20-22)
Faith and Deeds MUST work together!!
Faith without deeds is like being in a row boat but only moving one oar. Where do you go? You go in a circle! Deeds without faith is the same. You will only go in a cirlce with moving only one oar. However, when you move the oar of faith and the oar of deeds together, then you go somewhere. Do something for the Lord and allow your faith and deeds to work together so that you can go places for the Lord!
