A Man Bent Over
Try to picture this man: He claims to have faith, but he has no deeds (James 2:14). He says he is a believer. He talks about faith in Christ. He claims to be a Christian. But there isn’t anything distinctively Christ-like about his behavior. Nothing makes his life obviously different from other men in the world, except for the fact that he claims to have faith.
A faith like that leaves you in the same position as the devil (James 2:19). He knows that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died on the cross and that he rose from the dead. But Satan does not love Christ. He does not trust Christ. And he certainly doesn’t serve Christ. The devil serves himself. He is completely preoccupied with his own misery.
I want you to see what sin does to us and what will happen in your life when authentic faith brings you into a living bond with Jesus Christ…
