Evidence of Truly Trusting God

James 1 and 2 

There are things that we can’t see like viruses, but we know that they are there.  Faith in God is like that. 

•   Single-minded Prayer

James 1:1-8:  Hardship is common.  We can have joy if we pray about our problems.  Seek help from God.  Prayer is a Sign of Faith.

Philippians 4:6-7:  Peace will guard you life.

•   Evidences of faith in our prayer life

How often do I pray?

What do I pray for?

Am I thankful to God?

Does God’s peace guard my heart?

Am I praying for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven? 

•    Loving God

James 1:12 – Evidence of faith in the heart.

Luke 10:25-28: Love God.

Gal. 5:6: Faith works through love.  

2 Peter 1:5-7: Faith is the beginning and love is the power to make us who we can be in his image.

1 John 2:15-17  

There is so much competition for our love.

•    Doing God’s Work

James 1:21-2:29: Be doers of the word

1:21-25:  Correct things when you find they are wrong or you haven’t done them.

Showing mercy to all, 1:26-2:13. Show the spirit of Christ to all.  Treat people how you would like to be treated.

Faith and works, 2:14-26. Faith is evidenced by our activities.
