James 2:14-26

  • Faith without works is dead.
  • “Talk is cheap”
  • It doesn’t cost you anything to just say something.
  • It does cost you something to do something.

Even the demons tremble at the name of Jesus

  • But because they have chosen to disobey him, they are not saved merely by knowing about him.
  • Likewise, our knowledge of Jesus, does not make us a follower of Him.
  • Only by putting our trust in Him, and obeying His word, do we demonstrate His Lordship over our lives.

“Living a life of faith”

  • When the rubber hits the road
  • Experience the excitement of Christian living.
  • If you think that Christian life is boring, that’s probably because you’ve only ever met boring Christians.
  • Christians who are living the exciting Christian life, are fulfilling their calling in mission.
  • They are the most fulfilled people on the planet.

How to Grow Up

1 Corinthians 4:11

  • “When I was a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child, I talked like a child.
  • But then I became a man.
  • And I put those things behind me.”
  • You have to chose to put childish things behind you.

Definitions

  • Child-like
    • Innocent
    • Pure
    • Good
  • Childish
    • Immature
    • Small-minded
    • Bad in an adult.  Tolerable in a chid.

Taking the step of faith requires courage

  • Moving into the unknown
  • It might be unfamiliar, but God will be the same.
