Old apologetics to new evangelization

The thought occurred that you can saw off the end of today's Second Reading and get this:
I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.
Which suggests a way to get at the problem of evangelizing a society that thinks it's heard that whole Christian shtick before.

We can probably pull it out of a specific Christian context altogether and say that our works, whatever they may be, demonstrate what we believe in, whatever we may say we believe in. A person without works is dead; if we're still alive, we're demonstrating our faith to others. Let us pray that it be faith in Christ.
