Faith Without Works is Dead!

Sermon Teaser for September 9, 2018
Our Epistle lesson this week is from James 2:1-10, 14-18.  Here the Lord gives us a stark reminder through James that while faith alone saves us, it must be followed by obedience.  True faith shows itself in this, that we die to ourselves and live in obedience to Christ.  James sums it up like this, “Faith without works is dead!” 
Believing means dying to ourselves, and submitting ourselves to the guidance of God’s Holy Word. This is where true life is found!  If we are not dead to self and alive to Christ, then we are truly dead.  Hear His Word today, believe and live!
