Scripture of the Day - July 12, 2012

James 2:17  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

James is telling the church that declaring faith in not enough, knowing doctrine is not enough. knowing who God is, is not enough. Good grief, even the devils know who God is and look where they're headed! James 2:19  Let's not hang our hat on our understanding of doctrine, let's not be vain in our imaginations, rather, let's understand that we must prove our faith by our actions. James 2:20 We prove our faith by loving others. Love is the ultimate display of faith. Love is the 'works of faith'. Remember what Paul said...( I paraphrase) if I don't have love then nothing I do, no matter how sacrificial it is, profits me.
