(sermon begins at 20:20)
James 2:1-17 – Ever wonder what creates the line between faith that is alive and faith that is dying away? James says here that faith without works is dead. But if we look more at faith two essential ingredients are needed for faith to live: The Word of God and Holy Spirit. Without both faith fights the battle to stay alive. Jesus calls us to something much deeper than just believing in Him. And when the Word and the Spirit are embraced they need a way to express themselves in the faith of a person. Christ gave us His Kingdom and He gave us His Church for us to embrace a living faith.
faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.Romans 10:17
