Take Action Now Because Faith Without Work is Dead



www.janeanesworld.com faith without work is dead


It is wonderful to take action now, because faith without work is dead. When you take action now, you get moving in order to accomplish some goal or mission. Often people make plans and they think things will work out and that if they have faith enough. To be honest, sometimes that happens. However, in reality, it is more likely that faith alone will not take a person from dream to plan to success. Often faith alone is not sufficient to succeed, work is needed.

Faith is a good thing, a thing to be nurtured and cherished. However, faith alone, will not get your goals accomplished. The reason for this is because faith without work is dead. This means that all the faith is an ingredient in the recipe for success, but not the only thing needed. Things get done when work gets put in.. In order to get something done. If you have a dream, if there is something you plan to accomplish, don’t sit back on faith alone. Instead, take action now, put in the work and you will find that faith accompanied by action can work miracles.

By way of example, think about the story in the Bible that says faith the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain. According the words in the Bible, if a person has faith,  just a tiny amount of faith, she can say to a mountain move and the mountain could be cast into the sea. Often people who read these words concentrate only on the faith involved. However, if you look at the entire story, you see that the person has to do something, in this case, say something. The faith had action behind it. The mountain would remain where it sits until the action was taken, until it was told to move.


Look at things in your life through the eyes of faith in need of action. Have you written a plan for a new business venture that you just know will work? Good for you! Now take the next step and add some action to your ideas. Put some work behind your faith. Your faith that your ideas are good is a good thing, when you add work to that faith,  you have a great thing. Don’t be afraid of the work. Do not think that work diminishes your faith. Quite to the contrary, it is because you have great faith that you should put in great work. Inertia is an idea in science that an object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by some outside force. Your faith combined with work is a force that will propel you to keep moving forward to accomplish your goals.




In conclusion, it is wonderful to take action now because faith without work is dead. So, the question for you this wonderful day is, what are you going to take action now to make happen?

  1. Thank you for sharing this honest reminder. Sometimes I think we all forget that we have to put things in to action while praying.

  2. this is an inspiring post and honestly i have no answer for your question i will have to think on it

  3. Without faith, we cannot please God and that faith should be accompanied by works. Saying we have faith is not enough, but we need to translate our faith into action. Faith should be strong enough in our lives that it will direct our behavior. 🙂

  4. Thank you for this inspiring piece. It’s a good reminder to act and not wait.

  5. Thanks for the quote and story. I feel motivated to take action to achieve my dreams.

  6. I totally agree with this. I see people all the time that go to church, but don’t DO anything to show their belief in Christ the rest of the week.

  7. So true, good things don’t come to those who simply wait, good things come to those with the patience and perseverance to work until they accomplish their goals.

  8. This is a good point to make and share!! It reminds me of the God helps them who help themselves saying my mom used to always say. Your faith will guide you, but you have to do some moving to get there!

  9. This is so timely for me. I’ve been working on taking action on some important business areas of my life, so these words are very resonant.

  10. yes, you do have to DO something with your faith. you always have such sage advice, janeane!

  11. I actually have been dissolving my freelance business for the past couple of weeks. Tonight I made one of the toughest phone calls I knew I was going to have to make. (I work full-time. This side stuff was no longer a great thing for me or my family.)

  12. It is horrible how many plans I have for my blogging and other areas of my life. However, they are just that if I don’t put them into action. I’ve got to take it one step at a time, but I have a feeling these plans will lead me where I want to go!

  13. I agree with Robin, wishing for something isn’t going to make it happen. You have to work for everything in life!

  14. GREAT point you made here. Faith is a great catalyst, but it’s up to us to run from there.

  15. Great words of wisdom! I’m a big fan of “Let Go and Let God” handle things I can’t handle without faith!

  16. I like the concept of your article, you are true, we need to work on the things we want to finished now so laziness won’t kick in.

  17. Action is a necessary step. Not much happens when we just sit around and wait for it.

  18. We Pagans are very firm believers in Karma. We believe that what you put out into the universe, you get back 3 fold. If you believe in your business, and you put the effort into it, you’re bound to do well!

  19. I was just saying something like this to my Hubs a couple of days ago. A long time ago I heard a story about 2 people. They both had a pile of dirt in their yard that needed moved. The first one prayed for it to be moved. The second one got out a shovel and moved it.

  20. Faith is definitely an amazing thing to always have and also a stepping stone to get where you want to be. It may not accomplish your goals but it sure does give you a head start. I think it’s very important to have faith in something, anything, to keep you focused.

  21. I think that goes for just about anything. Wishing for something to happen isn’t going to make it happen – you have to take action and get it done.
