Worship in Action

"Faith is a living and unshakeable confidence, a belief in the grace of God so assured that one could die a throusand deaths for its sake.  This kind of confidence in God's grace, this sort of knowledge of it, makes us joyful, high-spirited, and eager in our relations with God and with all people.  That is what the Holy Spirit effects through faith.  Hence, the person of faith, without being driven willingly and gladly seeks to do good to everyone, serve everyone, suffer all kinds of hardships, for the sake of the love and glory of the God who has shown such grace.  It is impossible, indeed, to separate works from faith, just as it is impossible to separate heat and light from fire."
--Martin Luther

Faith is living out God's grace in the world.  It's allowing the Holy Spirit to be in us and work through us.  And when we do this...  it's worship in action.

What are you doing to serve God in worship this week?
