Faith Without Works: What good is it?

  • James 2:14-17

Faith Without Works: As good as demons!

  • James 2:18-19

James 2:22-24

  • Without works, your faith is inactive.

  • Without works, your faith is incomplete.

  • If you want to be justified by faith like Abraham, you need works like Abraham.

SIDE NOTE: What if I don’t like that?!

  • Preface to Luther’s 1522 German Translation:

  • “You are in a position now rightly to discriminate between all the books, and decide which are the best. The true kernel and marrow of all the books, those which should rightly be ranked first, are the gospel of John and St. Paul’s epistles, especially that to the Romans … In comparison with these, the epistle of St. James is an epistle full of straw …”

LET US BELIEVE ALL OF GOD’S WORD.

  • James 2:26 (ESV)For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

  • Do you have Abraham’s living faith?

  • Do you have Abraham’s faith in the living God?

  • Is today the day when your faith saves?
