Stewardship: Faith Requires Action
In this short video (2:26), Ron continues an eight-week series on biblical stewardship. This week, he shares that a fundamental component of stewardship is that our faith requires action. As stewards, we live out the truths that God owns it all and that we are His managers through our actions. A life of faith enables us to act boldly in our stewardship decisions.
As always, Ron’s encouragement to you is to go back to God’s Word to restore your faith. Take a moment to consider the following Scriptures, and meditate on their Truth and their application.
Hebrews 11:1 (NASB)
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
James 2:17 (NIV)
“In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
Luke 19:13 (NIV)
“So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. 'Put this money to work,' he said, 'until I come back.'”
Psalm 33:4 (NIV)
“For the word of the LORD is right and true; He is faithful in all He does.”
