An Expositional Sermon
“Faith Without Works Is Dead, Part 2”
Theme/Big Idea: Real faith bears works consistent with belief in God’s ability to raise the dead, and of a love that looks like taking risks for the good of God’s people.
Aim/Appropriation/Application: Pray that God would grow us up in Christ bearing the kind of fruit that increasingly reflects the perfections of Christ.
