Possession and Profession of Faith (James 2:19-20, John 3:35-36)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, March 16, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

We are fortunate to live in a place that the Word of God is common. Do you understand the difference between knowing there is a God and knowing God. Just because you believe there is a God doesn't mean that you are saved. We believe that our cars will start. We believe that the leftovers in here fridge will not make us sick and are still good to eat. Even the devils believe there is only one God but that doesn't mean they are born again. People live that there is always a tomorrow. They live as if there is no judgement. Many have professed that they know Jesus Christ but they do not live for Him. Just because you believe that the sun will come up tomorrow doesn't mean that it will. Faith without a work is not a faith. True faith will compel you to do things you would rather not do. You could go to church all your life and still go to hell if you're not saved. Your church membership will not get you into heaven. How will you know that you've been saved? There will be a change, not outward but inward.  The bible has been given to give life, a working faith.

James 2:19-20

19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? (KJV)

John 3:35-36

35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (KJV)
