Biblical faith is an active faith. Our faith won’t move so much as a molehill if it does not move us. You see, a word based faith is more than a faith based on word (James 2:18-20).
A word based faith worships God, pleases God, hears God, travels toward God, trusts God, sows God, remembers God, fears God, values God, marches with God, changes for God, suffers for God and is recognized by God! At least this is what Hebrews 11 of the word of God teaches.
Simply said, a word based faith is doing whatever God has asked us to do in his word, and nowhere does that include having a faith that talks and talks and talks and talks. Talking about what we hear does not justify … doing what we hear accomplishes that (James 2:21-26).
“As for you, son of man, the children of your people are talking about you beside the walls and in the doors of the houses; and they speak to one another, everyone saying to his brother, ‘Please come and hear what the word is that comes from the Lord.’ So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain. Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them. And when this comes to pass—surely it will come—then they will know that a prophet has been among them.” (Ezekiel 33:30-33, NKJV)
