James 2:14-26 May 19 AM
Intention: Faith must be put into action
F: Freed through Faith: this stands alone, only faith empowered by the Holy Spirit can save us and free us from sin and death
A: Acting in Faith: If there are no actions, how do we know there is faith?
----->Note that shaking demons are useless
I: Informed by the Word: Abraham
T: Trusting in God
H: Healed from past failures: Rahab
Therefore: act! Tell that person about Jesus! Act! Find a job that does not violate your Biblical standards! Act! Do the right thing: follow publicly, live fully for Christ; repent; restore your relationships...
Stop "having faith it will work out" and put work guided by the Word into play.

Personal note: Pray for Ann and I to have wisdom about vehicles. We’ve got one van in the shop and the car needed a brace of tires this morning as well. We’d rather fix the van, but probably need a new one. However, budget issues must be considered, so we need the Lord’s wisdom on this one.
