Last night I watched a few Super Bowl commercials with the theme of unity. The unity was such a big part of the commercial that I really don’t remember whose commercial. Part of that theme was service to others, getting involved, being something bigger than yourself.
In James 2, he mentions that faith without deeds is dead. My prayer today, is God show me what more I can do.
This concept that faith without deeds being dead, begs the question ‘I thought that salvation is free’? Salvation is free. However, Jesus commanded us to “#LOVE one another”.
So what James is really saying is that we have to do for our fellow-man, just as Jesus did to show the same #LOVE to people who Jesus did. After all, he healed the sick, showed mercy to sinners (like me), and raised the dead.
THIS THEME OF UNITY AT A SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL? RECENTLY, I HAVE SEEN THIS ON A FEW OTHER COMMERCIALS AS WELL. It strikes me funny that the advertisement world is turning on its ear. A business that is centered around making money is now focusing on #PEOPLE?
For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
Psalm 33:4-5 NIV
