“If you need some help just give me a call.”
Such an easy statement, but do we mean what we say? Are we really the church or do we just play at going to church? We are all different people, but we all read the same book.
Jas 2:14-17 (Message) Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, “Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup–where does that get you? Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?
