The Bible tells us “faith without good deeds is useless” (James 2:20). We should not only be talk but action when it comes to our faith, and guest speaker Pastor Jonathan Laurie’s reminding us of that in this Sunday episode.


James is stating that merely saying you have faith does not mean you have it.

The sin of commission is knowing what is wrong and doing it anyway.

The sin of omission is knowing what is right and not doing it.

1. Dead Faith.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” —John 3:16

We are saved by grace through faith, not works.

But saving faith will have works.

2. Demonic Faith.

A faith that only stirs our hearts, stimulates our intellect, and does not bring forth a transformed life does not bear spiritual fruit—it is not a true faith.

3. Dynamic Faith.

Dynamic saving faith, to start with, is based on the Word of God.

“The whole person plays a part in true saving faith. The mind understands the truth; the heart desires the truth; and the will acts upon the truth. The men and women of faith named in Hebrews 11 were people of action: God spoke, and they obeyed.” —Warren Wiersbe

“Of what value is the grace I profess to receive if it does not dramatically change the way that I live. If it does not change the way that I live, it will never change my eternal destiny.” —C. H. Spurgeon
