Sermon Notes

If i were to ask a first responder, how do you determine if someone is alive if they are unresponsive, I’m sure they would tell me to check their pulse, their breathing, or perhaps to shine a light in their eyes.  If this is how we determine whether a body is alive… if the heart, lungs, eyes are working… why then is it not okay to determine whether a faith is alive by whether their trust, obedience, and love are working?  James tells us in chapter 2 verse 26: “for as the body apart from the spirit is dead… so faith apart from works is dead.
