SERMON NOTES:
Martin Luther:

“We are saved by faith alone, but the faith that saves is never alone.”

Dr. Alfred Adler:

Trust only in movement. Life happens at the level of action. We are not what we say, but what we do, that is the real key to our intentions.”

Matthew 7:21-23

  1. DO YOU HAVE A  FAITH?

James 2:14-17

C.S. Lewis:

“Christians have often disputed as to whether what leads the Christian home is good actions, or faith in Christ. I have no right really to speak on such a difficult question, but it does seem to me like asking which blade in a pair of scissors is most necessary.”

Galatians 2:16

Matthew25:36-40

Matthew 25:41-43

William Wilberforce:

“So enormous, so dreadful, so irremediable did the [slave] trade’s wickedness appear that my own mind was completely made up for abolition.”

Charles Spurgeon:

“If you want to give a hungry man a tract, wrap it up in a sandwich.”

Warren Wiersbe said:

“No man can come to Christ by faith and remain the same, any more than he came into contact with a 220-volt wire and remain the same.”

2. DO YOU HAVE A  FAITH?

James 2:18-19

Mark 3:11-12

Luke 8:31

Matthew 8:28-29

Albert Barnes:

“If they (demons) might hold such faith, and still remain in perdition, men might hold to it and go to perdition.”

Jonathan Edwards:

“If  you know all the doctrine in the world, if you know the bible insides and out, if you orient your life around an awareness of God and you shudder, trying to avoid him by trying to live a moral life, trying to live an upright religious life; that is not a living faith.”

The reformers of the reformation:

“Justification is by faith alone, but not by a faith that is alone.”

Galatians 6:7-10

 

3. DO YOU HAVE A  FAITH?

James 2:20-24

Erasmus:

“People think they are being mocked when you say to them, ‘Keep warm and well fed,’ and give them neither food nor clothing. Just so the person who offers no tangible proofs of his faith but repeats every day, I believe in God, I believe in God, seems to be mocking God.”

Genesis 22:12

C. S. Lewis :

“Don’t shine so others can see you. Shine so that through you others can see Him.”
