The Danger of Superficial Faith

James 2:14-19

June 17, 2018

 

Introduction:

 

 

 

  1. Key question: If a person professes Jesus as their Savior, but lacks good deeds toward others, is their faith genuine? James 2:14-16

 

 

 

  1. James’ conclusion: No, their faith is dead. James 2:17

 

 

 

  • Objection: Cannot some individuals specialize in faith or belief without showing much in the way of good deeds? James 2:18-19

 

 

 

Conclusion:

 

 

 

 

Questions for reflection:

  • What evidence can you see in your life that you have true faith in the Lord?
  • What do you regard as signs of a mere intellectual belief as opposed to true belief in the Lord?
