Is My Faith Real?

James 2:17 - So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

Romans 3:28 - So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.

The faith that does not show itself through good works is not real!

  1. Faith that only comes from the LIPS.

THE VERBAL FAITH

James 2:14 - What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?

James 2:15–16 - If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 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?

John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 John 3:16 - Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

III. Faith that comes from the HEART.
