"Living Faith" 2/13/24

Dear brothers & sisters,

Kelly preaching through James has really got me thinking about living (true born again) faith. People have often falsely said that James isn't about the gospel. But that's just silliness. James is all about the gospel, the gospel alive in us, the gospel lived out. Think about it... If you've been raised to life will you remain in the grave? No, you'll get up and go follow the one who gave you new life.

James sums up the difference between a living and a dead faith this way, 

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but does not have works? Can this kind of faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacks daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm and eat well,” but you do not give them what the body needs, what good is it? 17 So also faith, if it does not have works, is dead being by itself. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith without works and I will show you faith by my works.

James 2:14-18
