24 You see that a man is justified (pronounced righteous before God) through what he does and not alone through faith [through works of obedience as well as by what he believes]. James 2:24
Faith is action. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Faith without action is dead. Faith is the demonstration of what you believe and trust. Faith put into action is the Spirit of God working through HIS CHILDREN. Faith put into action is the power of God being demonstrated here on earth as it is in heaven. Faith put into action brings healing, restoration, salvation, and forgiveness through God’s love and redemptive power working in his children.
Abraham demonstrated his faith by being obedient to God through his willingness to sacrifice Isaac.
Daniel demonstrated his faith by worshipping God and not bowing down to worship the King.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego demonstrated their faith by worshipping only the One true God and would not bow down to a god of gold.
David demonstrated his faith knowing that there is a God of Israel and was not afraid of Goliath.
Peter demonstrated his faith by telling the cripple he did not have silver or gold but in the name of Jesus Christ he helped the cripple to his feet and was healed.
Noah demonstrated his faith by believing God’s word and built an Ark which saved his family.
Elijah demonstrated his faith and trusted God by challenging all the false prophets. “If the Lord is God follow him; but if Baal is god, follow him.”
Joseph demonstrated his faith and trusted God through the pit, slavery, unjust imprisonment and betrayal to be elevated to the palace.
Job demonstrated his faith and trusted God after losing his family and wealth. He said naked I come into the world, naked I will leave the world, praise be to God, and was fully restored.
David demonstrated his faith by not killing King Saul in the cave when he had the opportunity and trusted God to deliver him.
Moses demonstrated his faith by delivering Israel out of Egypt, not fearing the King, and passing through the Red Sea.
What you believe will be demonstrated by what you do. Faith without works/action is dead.
