You mean we have to "do" something

Thursday September 14th, James 2: 14 My friends, what good is it to say you have faith, when you don't do anything to show that you really do have faith? Can that kind of faith save you? 15 If you know someone who doesn't have any clothes or food, 16 you shouldn't just say, "I hope all goes well for you. I hope you will be warm and have plenty to eat." What good is it to say this, unless you do something to help? 17 Faith that doesn't lead us to do good deeds is all alone and dead! This makes us Lutherans cringe, and for good reason, on one level it seems to attack the very identity of who we are, those saved by Grace. Grace however changes hearts and changed hearts are always in search of ways to expand and understand the “love your neighbor” thing. Grace saves us "for" not just "from."
