Deeds of Faith

Passage: James 2:1-17, Mark 8:11-21
Service Type:

After the Pharisees try to get Jesus to perform a miracle to prove he is from God, Jesus warns his disciples against the leaven of the Pharisees.  He then marvels at their lack of understanding of this remark.  James speaks of a church that wants to honor rich people and explains that this is not loving all others as we love ourselves.  He goes on to say that our deeds will show what we really believe.

Jesus calls, and James illuminates the call to love others in deed, not just word.
