Faith without WorksVerse 14

  • 14What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?

  • Can such faith save them?

John 8:30-31To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.


Faith without WorksVerse 14

  • 14What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?

Paul

James

Root of salvation = faith + nothing

Fruit of salvation = works afterwards

Life from God’s perspective

Life from Man’s perspective

Instructing

Exhorting

Sees the fire in the fireplace

Sees the smoke in the chimney


  • 15Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?


  • 15Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?

1 John 3:16-1816 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.


  • 17In the same way, faith by itself, if it

  • is not accompanied by action, is dead.

  • Hebrews 11:6 … without faith it is

  • impossible to please God …


  • 18But someone will say, “You have faith;

  • I have deeds.”

  • Show me your faith without deeds, and I

  • will show you my faith by my deeds.

  • “You are saved by faith alone, but faith in Christ is never alone.”

  • Calvin


  • 18But someone will say, “You have faith;

  • I have deeds.”

  • Show me your faith without deeds, and I

  • will show you my faith by my deeds.

“They love one another. They never fail to help widows; they save orphans from those who would hurt them. If they have something they give freely to the man who has nothing; if they see a stranger, they take him home, and are happy, as though he were a real brother. They don’t consider themselves brothers in the usual sense, but brothers instead through the Spirit, in God.”


19You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

They believe in God

James 2:19

They believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ

Mark 3:11-12

They believe in the existence of Hell

Luke 8:31

They believe Jesus will be the Judge

Matthew 8:28-29


20You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith

without deeds is useless?


21Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar?22You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.23And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend.


24You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.


B) Example #2 Verse 25

25In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction?

Abraham

Rahab

Father of the Jews

A Gentile

Man

Woman

Godly Man

Prostitute

Friend of God

Part of the enemies of God


  • 26As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith

  • without deeds is dead.

  • 2 Corinthians 13:5Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?

Matthew 7:21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.


Ephesians 2:8-108For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—9not by works, so that no one can boast.

10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
