“Genuine faith always makes a difference in your life.”

November 17, 2019

What is faith, and how does it work? James confronts us with a hard truth: faith without works is dead. And underneath his argument, he teaches us about the nature of faith. Far from something you just say, feel, or think, faith is a trusting response to God that always leads to a changed life. 

Application Questions

  1. What are some different ways people define the word “faith”? What do you think James would say to those different definitions? 
  2. Why do you think James wants so badly for us to know that faith without works is dead? 
  3. If faith never stops growing, how vibrant is your faith right now? Is there anywhere that God is calling you to grow that you are resisting or ignoring?
