Check out James 2:17-24. Here’s what I learned:
1) Faith without action is dead. PERIOD. You trust God? …then act like it. Help those in need. Obey His commands. But don’t simply rely on your church attendance or your Christian heritage.
2) Demons even know who God is. I hate it when I hear people say, “Well, I believe in God.” Yeah? So does the devil! But do you trust in God? Do you obey God?
3) A person is justified by FAITH…working outwards (i.e. obedience, compassion, love). We don’t work, serve, obey to please God. We do that out of God’s approval and love.
