From the biblical point of view, there is only one way to put faith into action. You have to believe what God said through His Word enough that you seek to learn, and then you OBEY His Biblical Commandments. From the biblical point of view, what ever you follow and obey is what you truly believe, and what you truly belong to, (Romans 6:14–18).
For example, if I continually obey my sinful nature and I don’t practice turning away from that, then this actually proves that I don’t really believe or belong to God, but I really belong to sin, because if I really believed God was serious about what He says, then I would be serious about turning away from my sin, and running to God to help me overcome it. What I DO proves what I really BELIEVE.
There are 1050 Commandments that believers are required to do in the New Testament. Pick one that you know is doable, and start practicing it. Pray through, and work through your internal garbage until you succeed obeying that instruction.
There are 613 doable Commandments in the Torah of YHWH. Pick one that you know is doable, and start putting that Instruction into practice. Pray through, and work through your internal garbage until you succeed obeying that instruction.
There are about 7487 promises from God to humankind in the Scriptures. The thing is that as believers we are welcome to have every one of those promises, but we can only have those promises when we believe and choose to obey any condition which God has placed upon a particular promise. The fact that we obey the conditions behind the promise is actually what proves to God that we believe Him for that promise. That’s why the conditions are there;
because only people who truly believe God, are going to care enough to learn and practice obeying the conditions that He is placed on a biblical promise.
