3 14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,”
4 but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”
5 Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?
6 21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,”
7 and he was called God’sfriend.24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone. 25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
8 “DID GOD REALLY SAY YOU MUST NOT EAT FROM ANY TREE IN THE GARDEN “DID GOD REALLY SAY YOU MUST NOT EAT FROM ANY TREE IN THE GARDEN?” “YOU WILL NOT SURELY DIE. FOR GOD KNOWS THAT WHEN YOU EAT OF IT YOUR EYES WILL BE OPENED AND YOU WILL BE LIKE GOD.” GENESIS 3:1;4&5
9 JESUS SAID, John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another JESUS SAID, John 13: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
10 LUKE 7:36 One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to eat with him, so Jesus went into the Pharisee’s house and sat at the table. 37 A sinful woman in the town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house. So she brought an alabaster jar of perfume 38 and stood behind Jesus at his feet, crying. She began to wash his feet with her tears,
11 and she dried them with her hair, kissing them many times and rubbing them with the perfume. 39 When the Pharisee who asked Jesus to come to his house saw this, he thought to himself, “If Jesus were a prophet, he would know that the woman touching him is a sinner!”
12 40 Jesus said to the Pharisee, “Simon, I have something to say to you Simon said, “Teacher, tell me.”41 Jesus said, “Two people owed money to the same banker. One owed five hundred coins and the other owed fifty. 42 They had no money to pay what they owed,
13 but the banker told both of them they did not have to pay him but the banker told both of them they did not have to pay him. Which person will love the banker more?” 43 Simon, the Pharisee, answered, “I think it would be the one who owed him the most money.” Jesus said to Simon, “You are right.” 44 Then Jesus turned toward the woman and said to Simon,
14 “Do you see this woman? When I came into your house, you gave me no water for my feet, but she washed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. 45 You gave me no kiss of greeting, but she has been kissing my feet since I came in. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she poured perfume on my feet.
15 47 I tell you that her many sins are forgiven, so she showed great love. But the person who is forgiven only a little will love only a little.”48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”49 The people sitting at the table began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”
16 50 Jesus said to the woman, “Because you believed, you are saved from your sins. Go in peace.”
17 John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another John 13: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
18 MATTHEW 22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
19 MATTHEW28:18-20Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
20 HERE IS WHAT GOD SAYSABOUT SATAN’S ADVICE:Revelation 3:16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!
