Daily Courage – October 10


from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.  (James 2:17)

Li An

I have a brother-in-law who works for the government of China. He strongly believed in Marxism and rationalism. He tried to persuade me to give up my faith in God. And I tried to convince him of the truth of the Gospel. In the end nobody won the argument.

But then he made a very interesting statement, “I do not believe in God, nor that Jesus ever existed. However, one thing I do confess is that I admire your father’s deeds. If there is a God, your father surely will be Jesus’ image.”

A few years later, he and his whole family became Christians. It taught me a very, very important lesson. My faith must be accompanied by works and deeds. “Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

Writer for the month – Li An from China. Because he is well-known in China, he requested that his real name was not published. We have used the pseudonym, Li An.
