Evidences of “True” Faith:
“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?” (James 2:14 )
“ 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” (James 2:15-17 )
“But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” (James 2:18 )
“ 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless?” (James 2:19-20 )
“For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.” (James 2:26 )
Action Point: Examine/test yourself!
“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? —unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” (2 Corinthians 13:5 )
TRUE faith may say the wrong thing, but will never act the wrong way!
