The italics are my thoughts:
Of what profit is it to anyone if we talk about having faith but never display it by what we do? (James 2:14)
Don’t be a spiritual couch potato!
Faith is dead if it is not displayed by works, like a single person without a mate—no children. (James 2:17)
People knowing without doing could be like those plowing the ground and then not bothering to sow any seed. No harvest!
The body whose spirit has departed is dead. So faith without works is also dead . (James 2:26)
Works are the heartbeat of faith—gives it life.
