The Bible Says That Faith Without Work Is Dead.

The Bible Says That Faith Without Work Is Dead.

In this short sermon, we are going to look at the meaning of James 2:20 which according to the bible says that faith without work is dead.

Meanwhile, let us outline the bible verse in its entirety.

Scriptural text:

But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without work is dead?

(James 2:20).

What does the bible say about faith without work?

The bible says in James 2:20 that faith without work is dead.

That in essence is the simple answer to the question: what does the bible say about faith without work?

To further expatiate the answer to the above question, let us see how the Bible gives us an example of how faith comes with work in the scripture below.

If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

James 2:15-17.

And as we can all witness, faith requires a practical approach to life.

For example, if you claim to love God, you must first start by loving the fellow human beings you see here on earth as the scripture says in 1 John 4:20

This is because human beings were created in the image and likeness of God.

And for that reason, if you want to have faith, always practice what you see in the scriptures because:

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

James 10:17
