Set Apart To Serve

A tree is recognized by its fruit
Nowadays we can call ourselves religious, spiritual, enlightened, believer, Christian or whatever other name we can come up with. Even within Christian circles we have names for our groups and denominations, we're either catholic, protestant or charismatic. The name game goes further then that, because within these groups are yet other groups to be found, like baptists or presbyterians. However, it is not the name we give ourselves that sets us apart from the rest of the world, it is our actions! Well, besides our relationship with Jesus of course! James 2:14 says it this way,
What good is it for someone to say that he has faith if his actions do not prove it?
Jesus said it simply like this: a tree is recognized by its fruit.
Let us make sure we are being recognized as Christians in a world that asks for help and comfort. Is there something you can do for someone else this week?
