Noted psychologist Dr. Alfred Adler once said, “We are not what we say, but we are what we do. What we do is the real key to our intentions.
Trust only in movement. Life happens at the level of action.”

Though Dr. Adler’s words are by no means inspired Scripture, he has captured the central message of James 2:14-26, our focal passage this
morning. Speaking to fellow believing Jews, James boldly contradicts a common misconception of the gospel: that one can come to Christ as Savior and show no outward evidence of a life transformed.

As we walk through this challenging and often controversial passage, my prayer for us is that we would be motivated to examine our hearts through the lens of God’s Word to see if our faith is actually working. Are we obeying God’s commands?

Are we sharing our faith with others? Are we being continually formed into the image of
Jesus? Or, have we settled for a dead faith that is, to quote James, “useless.”
