Mountain Top Life Devotional 29 April 2021 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Faith Without Works

TOPIC: Faith Without Works (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 29 April 2021)


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 5:1-10; 1 Chronicles 11-12


FIRE SCRIPTURE: James 2:17-26


17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.


18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.


19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.


20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?


21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?


22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?


23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.


24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.


25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?


26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.


MEMORY VERSE: “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” – James 2:17


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

He does not believe who does not live according to his belief.


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

AS YOU BELIEVE IN GOD TODAY, NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.


MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE 29 APRIL 2021 MESSAGE:

Faith without works is dead and works without faith is also dead. Neither of the two is complete in itself in the service to God. It is like fire burning without fuel and fuel without fire. It is clear from Genesis 22 that Abraham proved his faith to offer up Isaac as a sacrifice. It was faith that led him to this act of obedience (Genesis 22:23). Had he refused to obey, it would have demonstrated that he had no faith in God or His word. It is also clear that this act of faith and works were not his initial justification by faith. Thus every act of obedience is an act of faith and works combined to maintain justification before God. It is by work that Christians should demonstrate their faith. Rahab was also justified by her works and her faith when she hid the spies and sent them away in peace (Joshua 2).

Faith is the substance of things not seen, the evidence of things hoped for. It is creative power of divine works. Faith is divine testimony of right doing. It is the basis for pleasing God. It is also dependent upon God’s word as well as to trust in an unknown future. When we take steps depending on the words of God, we are acting in faith on God. An act of faith commits to the integrity of God and He will never fail us. Our faith enables us to get what we believe from God.


What is the evidence of your faith? You believe God. How do you show the world that you really believe in the God you profess to know? Your faith must be shown by your actions. When you pray, you should believe that your prayers have been answered. God will never fail anyone that sincerely believes in Him or His word. Take steps of faith today and you will be blessed by your action. God is faithful. Put it in your mind as you respond to life’s challenges and you will prove to the world that you have a God that answers by fire.


PRAYER POINTS:


MORNING


Let every spiritual weakness in my life receive termination, in the name of Jesus.

I cancel every negative agreement against my prayers, in the name of Jesus.

O Lord, empower my prayer altar by fire, in the name of Jesus.

EVENING


O God, arise in Your mercy and fight for me, in the name of Jesus.

O Lord, let it be easy for me to do Your will, in the name of Jesus.

O Lord, increase my faith, in the name of Jesus.

O Lord, sanctify my life and make me holy, in the name of Jesus.
