Bible Study Lesson – November 20, 2019 ~ 7:30 pm
James, the brother of Jesus, writes a letter to believers that had been scattered by persecution providing them with a series of tests by which one may can use to determine if their faith is true or false. Join us on Facebook Live every Wednesday as we navigate the inspirational and challenging book of James.
Lesson 5: Action Items
- James 2:14-17 is not about salvation; it’s about following Christ. What does James faith is without works (2:14)?
- What does God want the community of believers to do in regards to the poor (2:15-17)?
- What type of action items do you need to put into place for God’s agenda?
Lesson 6: Show Me Your Faith (James 18-20)
- What type of work should we practice (1:27; 2:1-17)?
- What should we understand about James (2:18-20)?
- Read Romans 6. What type of libert should we embrace (2:12)?
- Our faith must extend beyond an intellectual pursuit; otherwise, it is not faith at all. What contrasts does James make to affirm this point? What does this contraxt demonstrate (2:18)?
James 2:14-17 is not about salvation; it’s about following Christ. Faith is not simply an intellectual pursuit; it’s an ongoing act. How often is your faith put into action? Anything that’s not active, is decaying.
