BIBLE STUDY LESSON
TITLE: FAITH ACCOUNT
READING: 2nd Chapter of James
(Key Verse: James 2:20)
In this reading we will be accountants of our Faith.
When was the last time you
checked your Faith Account?
Your faith works on a
dollar and cents principle like money.
Every time you work on your faith
or keep your faith,
you deposit a dime into
your spiritual account.
The more deposits you make
into your spiritual bank,
the stronger you build your faith.
Now, I know the headings says we
will focus on the 2nd Chapter of James
but before we go there,
we must first visit the 1st Chapter.
We must understand who James was.
Tells us that James was a Bond Servant. A bond servant is someone bond in service with out wages. You must understand first that servant doesn’t mean slave, so its ok to have a servant heart. But a bond servant works without wages.
In order, for us to increase our faith we must go from a regular servant of God to a Bond Servant of God. Working strictly on and for the bond of God.
So, our key verse of this reading
brings the famous saying:
“Faith without works is dead.”
To fully understand this,
we must study the entire
2nd Chapter of the book James.
Tells us not use partiality with our Faith. This means to only do one part. This is also known as a compound effect which requires multiple actions for a desired effect.
Warns us of the dangers of judging others.
Which leads to a question of: Could the reasons why our spiritual account is low, is because of our judgement of others?
Brings the judgement of our accountability.
Using partiality towards people will lead to you having partiality in your faith. So, when you think you depositing 10 cents, you only deposited 5 cents. And some partiality can put you into the negative both ways.
Know who you are banking with. Like these false prophets who operate for profit, are they bonded?
When you are bonded with God, he is your bond security like the FDIC. God’s word is your protection for the tokens that your depositing.
Speaks on profit sharing.
You see, in the world you profit sharing every quarter or at the end of the year. But when you are bonded with God, your profit sharing comes instant. Not financially, but spiritually. But if your spirit is elevated you don’t have to worry about finances.
CHECKINGS + SAVINGS
Checkings = Is you checking yourself and taking accountability for your faith.
Savings = Is you saving yourself through your faith.
Even when your faith account has insufficient funds, your works will be the credit that is sufficient. In faith it’s not about your debt card, its about your Faith Card.
Merry-Go-Round Vs. House of Mirrors
Your walk with God is like being at a State Fair.
Faith without works is like a Merry-Go-Round because there is no work involved other than getting on the horse and the hidden machine just take you around. This is the trap that most of us fall into because we believe it’s the safe and easy way.
The house of mirrors is much scarier. Because it requires you to constantly look at yourself, while you work to get out.
So, get off the Merry-Go-Round, face yourself, so you can check yourself, so you can save yourself. How do we do that? Every time we deposit into our checking, God will pour into our savings. #GloryToGod
