This week, Pastor Michael Hodge expounded on James 2:14-26. We must be very careful here to note that good works are the result of faith, and NOT the other way around. Works cannot lead to faith; that is not the Gospel. But, there is a close connection between faith and works. People can say they have faith, and they can say that they do good works. But, true saving faith RESULTS in good works. Even demons believe in God! So, as believers, we are motivated to good works because of what Christ has done for us, loving us when we deserve no love.
Regrettably, a CD recording failed this morning due to a bad CD, which didn't give us a warning about it until after about 95% of the service was done. Hopefully, we encountered the last batch of bad CD's.
And we hope you have a great week in Christ Jesus!
