Just wanted to share a recent message that Josh gave at Source (our student ministry at Church @ the Springs). Even though it was intended for students, I felt like I needed this reminder as well! Hope you enjoy. :)

Main Point: Show your faith by helping someone in need.
“What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions?” James 2:14. The big question for the night was, “If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?” Sometimes we know just the right “Christian” thing to say, don’t we? Our prayers sound fancy, but they lack a humble heart. We wear the Christian T-shirts that says, “Jesus is my homeboy” or “God answers Knee-mail!” Maybe even a Jesus fish on your bumper. What are we doing to show our faith to people in need? We learned that we cannot earn salvation (Ephesians 2:8-10). We are not saved by good works but saved FOR good works! If you are a follower of Christ, it should be completely obvious! Students were encouraged to find practical ways to serve others this week!
