Billy Graham's Devotion: Faith Produces Works

By - Billy Graham Evangelistic Association On May 17, 2013

. . . doing service as to the Lord . . . -Ephesians 6:7

A true sacrament is not a mere creed, or ordinance, or form, but it is a life of service to God and to man. The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.

There must be a practical outworking of our faith here in this present world, or it will never endure the world to come. The Pharisees majored on show but minored on service. We need fewer words and more charitable works; less palaver and more pity; less repetition of creed and more compassion.

 

PRAYER FOR THE DAY

Talk so often drowns out the cries for help-I am guilty of this, Lord. I would worship You in everything I do. Extend my hands with Your mercy, Lord.
