We pray for things to happen, hoping God will hear and answer our petition. Does God walk among us? Does He carry out our requests Himself? How does God answer our prays, how does God cause things to happen in this world? Simply answered: we are God’s servants, if anything is to happen in this world for good it must be carried out by us.
James 2:15-17 “If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them ‘Go in peace, be warmed and be filled’, and yet you don’t give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.”
Matthew 25: 31-46
There are some things that are out of our control that God can affect on His own such as allowing someone’s health to improve. For the most part, God’s presence in this world is seen through us. If we don’t go about good service towards others then help and goodness won’t come to people. God expects us to dedicate our life to serving others. If we profess being a Christian then our life should produce the fruit of serving others.
Love your neighbor as you love yourself
