So we know faith without actions is dead. But we should not assume actions develop naturally. Instead, we must use actions. Here, actions translate to “work.” But what is the importance of thinking of actions as work? Most of us think work relates to a job. A job is like a profession or a vocation. Similarly, people might say a job is their calling. Nevertheless, if we think of actions as work or employment, we can think of godly actions as part of a contract. By as part of a contract, I mean being a part of an agreement. This agreement to produce godly actions, thus, comes from a working relationship with Jesus Christ. In a sense, this contract is not negotiable. When people are employed, they use their skills for a task. Likewise, when Christians are employed, they use their faith for tasks, jobs, and sometimes tribulations.
