It’s not enough to have the WILL to do something –
you need to ACT upon it (aka DO something)
[ok.. or not to act – if it’s something you shouldn’t be doing!!!]
“for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” Phil 2:13 – NKJV
“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Phil 2:13 – NLT
James 2:14-18 – NLT:
Faith without Good Deeds Is Dead
14 What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? 15 Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, 16 and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?
17 So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.
18 Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”
