Faith in Action

Dear Talented One,

“You should at least have put my money in the bank so I could have some interest…”( Matthew 25:27)
“…throw the useless servant out into the utter darkness..” (Matthew 25:30)

The faith we profess requires action. It is not just enough to say we believe – we must be acting upon those beliefs. There is that expectation.

Albert Schweitzer wrote about faith in action in his book “Out of My Life and Thought,” on page 92 he said, “I wanted to be a doctor so that I might be able to work without having to talk. For years, I have been giving myself in words, and it was with joy that I had followed the calling of theological teacher and preacher. But this new form of activity would consist not in preaching the religion of love, but in practicing it.”

Jesus was, is, and will be the master teacher of business management. A good manager offers firm accountability and has expectations of behavior. Jesus has given you talents and expects that you will use them within the Kingdom of God! Jesus offers firm accountability here because it is when our talents are used with maximum generosity in the world that we experience joy! And great joy is God's intention for our lives!

Still in one peace,
Pastor David J. Jensen
