afterhours 2/15

19 02 2009

As we continued in James, specifically James 2:14-22,  Pastor Josh Galgan challenged us further in what it means to live as a Christ follower.

He gave the scenario we have all encountered, the non-believer who has a disdain for the church and God because of things they see as not “right” in our Christian culture.  The hypocrisy, the judgment, the hurt they’ve experienced all instead of the love they should have received.  We are faced with their question of “why do I want to enter this faith if I don’t want to be like you, a Christ follower?”

James wants us to live the reality of our faith through a changed life.  Josh went took it a step further to explain that works justify our faith to man.  How we act demonstrates that we are different.   His hope for us is that we live out James 2:22 in our lives.

As you continue through this week think of ways you demonstrate your faith.  Leave us some of your experiences.

Also, don’t forget to join us Sunday for our Homeless Outreach, (we meet at 4 to prepare sack lunches and head downtown around 6:30) and continuation of our journey through James with Pastor Jonathan Stroud.
