It's Day 10 and we're in James 2.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 13 - A reminder of how important it is that we're merciful to those around us.
- Verses 9-11 - The analogy I often use is that sin is like standing at the edge of the Grand Canyon. I can take a tiny step forward (i.e. one sin) or I can rare back and take a huge flying leap (i.e. many sins), but either way I end up at the bottom.
- Verse 12 - We have been given freedom by the death of Christ.
- Verse 19 - The demons don't have saving faith in God, but they do know without question that there is one. The issue is not believing in God - it's serving and following Him.
- Verse 24 - The point: what we do is the evidence of what we really believe. Faith in name only is empty and worthless. My actions show the proof of my words.
