Is Your Religion Useless?


2But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. 23 For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. 24 You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. 25 But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.

26 If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. 27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.~ James 1:22-27

The Word we read, the words we hear from the Spirit, the sermons we hear, if we just listen to them and do NOTHING with them, if we listen and say “that was good” and walk back into the world un-changed it’s a waste of time, energy and effort. IT DOES not make us a Christian by having Bibles, knowing the right people, going to church. THE WORD OF GOD HAS THE POWER to transform a life, blow away addictions, heal the sick, renew a mind and totally change a life.

True change is seen when our heart and compassion changes, by taking care of others, loving the people in this world that need love and when the things of this world are NO LONGER able to corrupt us.


Now go out and have an EPIC day today
