Maturity Lesson 6. Genuine Faith

Maturity Lesson 6. Genuine Faith

 

James 2:14-26

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 

15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 

16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 

17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”

Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 

19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? 

21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 

22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 

23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,”and he was called God’s friend. 

24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.

25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 

26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

 

 

Connect:

If a person attends Sunday services every week, pray everyday and fast one day per week, then that person will probably be considered a person of good faith.  However, if that same person is a thief who steals every day, a person who takes advantage of his employees or an abusive father or a husband at home, then can we still consider him a person of good faith?  What is the relationship between the biblical faith and a Christian’s life?  Let’s study what James teaches us in today’s passages and apply in our lives.

 

Hear:

(1) James describes the relationship between the faith and the deeds.  How does he define the faith without deeds?  (verses 14-20, 26)

 

 

 

 

 

(2) James points out how Abraham and Rahab demonstrated their deeds.  How does James explain their deeds, faith and how they relate to their being considered righteous?  (verses 21-25)

 

 

 

 

(3) Paul emphasizes that we can only be saved by our faith.  On the other hand, James emphasizes the deeds by defining the faith without deeds as dead.  This can be confusing to some as it sounds like we are saved by our deeds instead of our faith.  In fact, Paul and James are talking about the same faith and the salvation but the emphasis placed at different points.  What is this difference?

 

 

 

 

 

(4) James states that the deeds prove the faith.  Why did he use the example of Abraham and Rahab in order to point out the deeds that must follow the genuine faith?

 

 

 

 

 

Reflect:

(5) James shouts to the Christians who believe that we are only saved by faith, “the faith without deeds are dead”.  What does such bold statement awaken within us?

 

 

 

 

 

Implement:

(6) We are never saved by our deeds.  However, our deeds are the living proof our genuine faith.  The world demands the proof of our faith.  Then where and to whom should I show my deeds based on my faith?  What commitment do I need to make today?

 

 

 

 

Seek:

Prayers for me:

 

 

Prayers for my upper room members:

 

 

Prayers for our church:

 

 

Prayers for all nations:

 

 

Think:

Live as a credible witness.   If our actions don’t line up with the message we’re proclaiming, we risk losing our credibility.  – David Jerimiah -
