James 2 - Summary

Outline

v1-9
Don't play favorites
v10-13
Have mercy on others as you need mercy yourself
v14-26
Don't just say that you have faith; if you really do, then act like it

Key
v12

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

Our actions should match our speech. We should confess that we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, but we must also do more than saying that. If it is really true that we have faith, then we must also have good behavior. That includes treating other people the right way.

Application
v16

And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be [ye] warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what [doth it] profit?

As I say that I am a believer in Jesus, I will make sure that I also act like it. I will take an opportunity to help out certain people with what they need.
