Many times in the Bible we find encouragement to not only discover our calling and gifts in God, but to put them into practice.
James challenges us, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (James 1:22) and also “faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.“
(James 2: 17b-18)
Faith and deeds go hand-in-hand. The Holy Spirit has distributed gifts to all of us, and these divinely-given gifts are there for us to use for the glory of God.
