Wednesday's Word - James 2

Hello All,
I hope we're still pressing forward and sticking with it. I imagine that life is doing what it does; presenting distractions that take up too much time and make the idea of "hitting the Jim" a situation more of wishful thinking than handling business. Be encouraged. You can do it.

Here's the focus: James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Smoke Signals

Some of have jobs that are too good to be true. I can't lie, I really feel like I'm one of' 'em. But I also remember dragging heavy tool boxes up and down the flight line loading all those bombs on all those planes. It wasn't easy work but it afforded me a valuable lesson. See, one easy thing about that hard situation was that you could quickly see who was blowing smoke and who were the real "worker bees". Of course, we'd give anyone the benefit of the doubt, but an excercise or training surge would show who was serious and who wasn't. The smoke blowers would always have excuses on how the "situation" was at fault rather than take any blame themselves. I mean really, who would ever really admit to being lazy? Worker bees just kept workin'. As Christians, we pray for God to touch our lives with a burning desire; a consuming fire to purge us and put us on the path to make a difference to the Glory of God. But far too many end up never getting involved in any ministry, choosing rather to watch from the sidelines. Oh, they can talk a good game, but when hard times come, you can see that their substance is mostly smoke. So how can an outsider tell that we're on fire, or just sending smoke signals?

In Him,
