"James - Faith/Works" | Teacher: Rob Rogers | January 9 - April 10 | Annex E-8
This study examines the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works. In our own ability, we cannot stand in the face of adversity. Without faith, we could never find the strength to trust God. We would never be able to see above the trials we meet and to keep our eyes focused on the King while counting our trials as joy. This is the essence of James. We do not work to be saved; we work because we are saved. Faith apart from works can never be sustained.
