JAMES: Judgment to Mercy

June 7, 2020

SERMON NOTES:
James 2:1-13

James is going to teach us today is; 
If we only love people based on their external appearance, our  is not genuine!

What does genuine faith look like?

James 1:27

Tim Keller, Gospel in Life: “A merely religious person, who believes God will favor him because of his morality and respectability, will ordinarily have contempt for the outcast. ’I worked hard to get where I am, and so can anyone else!’ That is the language of the moralist’s heart. ’I am only where I am by the sheer and unmerited mercy of God. I am completely equal with all other people.’ That is the language of the Christian’s heart. A sensitive social conscience and a life poured out in deeds of mercy to the needy is the inevitable sign of a person who has grasped the doctrine of God’s grace.”

James 2:1-13

THE WHY… You  God and   you don’t understand the  !

1 Corinthians 1:26-27

THE BETTER WAY… Do the !

Our Truth:
Faith without  toward others, is not genuine faith!
