Step 3: Work and Have Faith

Scripture Readings

“So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.”
– James 2:17 (NRSV)

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.”
– Psalm 37:5 (NRSV)

Introductory Remarks: 

Faith is a spiritual quality within us that “sees the possibility of a thing or result long before there is any [outer] evidence of it…” Unless you ‘see’ it, how can you work toward its demonstration?

Major Points of the Lesson:

  1. Faith provides a firm place in consciousness for the possibilities you see to grow and demonstrate. Be sure your faith is directed by God, alone. ‘…[H]ave faith in God.’ Mark 11:22 (NRSVUE)
  1. Your work toward your 2024 goals and dreams will pay off if you don’t give up. ‘So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time if we do not give up.’ Galatians 6:9 (NRSVUE)
