References: James 1"Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." The letter of James is vital reading whenever the believer is tempted to be content with knowledge devoid of action, to cultivate the world's friendship rather than God's, and to tolerate disorder and selfish ambition. As we'll learn, James shows us that the outward display of faith will find its roots in the inward transformation that has already taken place. These studies provide a forceful and timely reminder that our creed must be seen in our conduct and our attitude must display itself in action.
If God has redeemed us from our sin and given us the Holy Spirit to strengthen us against sin, then why do we go on sinning? In his book, The Enemy Within, Kris Lundgaard addresses this plaguing question by drawing upon the writings of Puritan author John Owen.
The gold Lungaard mines from John Owen’s work gives us hope, renewed love for Christ, and an approach to holiness through faith in Him in spite of our sinful state.
By revisiting the profound writings of John Owen, Lungaard updates the exposition, outlines, arguments and illustrations to bring this rich understanding of the Bible to the contemporary world.
