      James 2:14-16
      14 What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?
      What if the "him" in "can faith save him" is not the one who has faith without works, but the brother in need. Consider the preceding verse: For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.
      Consider this: that the one who is not willing to minister to the needs of "he who needs mercy" is not qualified to pray for him.

      Matthew 13:31-32
      31 He presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; 32 and this is smaller than all other seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.”
      I love this parable of small things. It is the parable that speaks of a child born in a manger. It speaks of twelve men who turn the world upside down. It speaks of a church without many who are "mighty" or "wise". It speaks of a Carolina boy, working in his father's farm, who grows to be "America's pastor." And it can speak of your life. Do not despise the small thing that is your life. What God can do is greater than what you can imagine.

      2 Corinthians 7:9-11
      "I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death. For behold what earnestness this very thing, this godly sorrow, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter."
      There are three aspects of repentance in scripture. The first is a repentance that only produces death. It may lead the penitent to believe that they are free from the consequences of their actions, but it is not a repentance that brings about change in life.
      The second is a repentance that produces salvation. While this repentance may not produce immediate change, it opens the door of the heart to a life of repentance, such as what occurred in Corinth. This life of repentance is not one of constant sorrow, but rather one of transformation that produces "innocence."

      John 14:16-21
      "I will ask the Father, and He will give you another [a]Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
      “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also. In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”
      The presence of the Holy Spirit among the believers is crucial to us as the church and as individual believers. The Holy Spirit teaches and reminds the believer concerning Christ. (14:25-31) The Holy Spirit bears witness regarding Christ. (15:26-27) The Holy Spirit convicts and judges. (16:7-11) The Holy Spirit guides us into all truth. (16:13-16)

      2 Peter 1:5-7
      "Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love.
      The old song goes, "All you need is love!" But how does one get to the love that is so essential. It begins with faith. That is the foundation to all good things. Faith is the basis of moral excellence. We cannot do what is right ourselves. We must do what is right out of our faith. Only when we have the foundation of faith and moral excellence can we truly understand the things of God. Once we understand the things of God, we can expand our behavioral control beyond issues of morality. We move from obeying what we ought not to do to doing what we ought to do. Then you will have the strength to endure through the hard times. That equation results in our character becoming aligned with God's character. Then our kindness and consideration moves beyond emotional reaction. And then, comes love, not as the world has, but as God's love through us.

      Deuteronomy 5:23-27
      And when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders. You said, ‘Behold, the LORD our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire; we have seen today that God speaks with man, yet he lives. Now then why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any longer, then we will die. For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? Go near and hear all that the LORD our God says; then speak to us all that the LORD our God speaks to you, and we will hear and do it.’
      There are those who seek the presence of the LORD without having to witness His power. There are those who wish to appropriate the power of God without experiencing His presence. The Israelites shrunk back from the presence of God because they feared His power. As a result, the presence and power of God rested upon a few people throughout their history, "men of whom the earth was not worthy."
      Hebrews 10:39: But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.

      Romans 10:8-11
      But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”
      The resurrection of Jesus Christ is paramount to our faith. No measure of belief in an unrisen Christ will save. you. Remove the resurrection and our entire theology of salvation collapses. As Paul said, "If Christ is not raised, we are men to be most pitied."

      Joel 2:11-14
      "The Lord utters His voice before His army;
      Surely His camp is very great,
      For strong is he who carries out His word.
      The day of the Lord is indeed great and very awesome,
      And who can endure it?
      “Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
      “Return to Me with all your heart,
      And with fasting, weeping and mourning;
      And rend your heart and not your garments.”
      Now return to the Lord your God,
      For He is gracious and compassionate,
      Slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness
      And relenting of evil.
      Who knows whether He will not turn and relent
      And leave a blessing behind Him,
      Even a grain offering and a drink offering
      For the Lord your God?"
      In God's spiritual economy you can find conviction without condemnation, holiness without hypocrisy, and righteousness without legalism. This is found in true repentance. If repentance becomes an outward act only, then it means nothing. There must be an inward disgust at one's own sin and a disciplined turning away from it.

      John 20:24-31, Judges 6: 11-40.

      Some Doubt.
      Faced with what seemed like an impossible challenge, Gideon doubted and asked for a sign. That sign consisted first of the consummation of the sacrifice, and then the dew upon the fleece. Thomas knew that Jesus had died. This tale of his resurrection seemed, at best, a pleasant illusion. He asked for a sign, that he would see the scars upon Jesus’ body. The sign was given. But Jesus’ does not promise that he will provide a sign for all. We must, ultimately exercise faith. Perhaps not blindly, but faith nevertheless.
