Proclaiming the gospel is important, but God also called His church to do something equally significant—demonstrate it. This is evident in the life of Jesus and in the early church. Their proclamation was often partnered with a demonstration of the power of the gospel through their lives.
One of the most tangible ways of gospel demonstration in the Bible, church history, and our movement, is reaching out to the poor—the people in great need and the oppressed. God cares about everyone, regardless of our status, rich or poor, and He calls us to do the same. In “Gospel Demonstrated,” we will look at the book of James and learn how true Christian living manifests in a biblical perspective of God’s provision and compassion for the poor.
Here is the list of topics:
- Week 1: The Testing of Faith
- Week 2: True Religion
- Week 3: No Partiality in the Kingdom
- Week 4: Faith Produces Works and Works Serves Others
- Week 5: The Dangers of Worldliness
- Week 6: Faith and Patience in Suffering
Through this series, we pray that we will be encouraged to translate our faith in Jesus to action, whether in times of testing or times of abundance.
