R -is redeemable for our Redeemer
So does service save us? Absolutely not! Does it change us; for sure. Do we do it willingly; often not. Is it rewarding; yes indeed, always. Is it part of our faith? James says so.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (James 2:14-17, NIV)
Prayer- Lord we need to remember that our good deeds are part of faith, for Christ’s sake. Amen.
