"As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead." James 2:26. This short series in James will explore some simple thoughts gleaned from this short but powerful letter.

It is a regular practice for Christians to read their bibles and listen to sermons and to become complacent in putting what they read or hear into practice. This tends to be the common source of the accusation that Christians are hypocrites. Let us be encouraged to be active in obeying in lifestyle the commands of our Lord.
