May 8: Faith in Action

 

Scripture Lesson: Psalm 27:1

 

Today is the birthday of Adrian Gonzalez, first baseman of the Boston Red Sox. Gonzalez’s bat, designed for him by the Trinity Bat Company, is a “PS 27:1” model. Psalm 27:1 also happens to be our Scripture lesson today as well as Adrian’s favorite verse. “I don’t want to be remembered in baseball,” he said. “I want to be remembered as a good witness for Jesus Christ.” (STV) “There is no pressure,” Gonzalez says. “My stats don’t matter. I am just trying to use this platform to bring people to Christ.”

 

Today’s Scripture lesson is pretty straightforward. As long as we have God as our light, our salvation, and our stronghold, we have nothing to fear or be afraid of in life. That verse reminds us we can be bold in living and sharing our faith. We don’t have to worry about what other people say or think. We can just be the people of God standing up for Him wherever we go. That would be faith in action.

  1. How can we be bold in living for God?

  2. What does it mean to put our faith into action?

  3. What reassurances can we draw from our Scripture lesson?

As believers, we have a responsibility to put our faith into action in the way we live each day. Let’s make a difference for God by being bold in living and sharing our faith!

True my bru!!When we think of submitting to the Lordship of Jesus, we must not think in terms of faelln earthly lords and kings.... He is entirely different. Submitting to or obeying God is submitting/subjecting ourselves to His Goodness over every area of our lives. Under His Lordship, there are no burdens.... and an easy yolk. How often it is so difficult to just rest beneath such undeserved favor!!.... This is the obedience required by our Good God: that we would let His Favor invade our entire lives and allow Him to entirely express His love to each of us!
