A Faith too Big for Works

The message of James is a sober wake-up call. The words of the text go so far as to say that one does not even have a living faith if there are not works to accompany that faith. Faith without works is not even ill, it is dead! This sermon reminds us that faith and works were meant to be the closest of friends and encourages us not to let our personal faith make us aloof to the needs around us.
