Text: James 2:1-13
New life in Christ changes what you value….and deepens your reliance on Jesus.
I. New Eyes To See (vv. 1-7)
Trusting Jesus means no more partiality
II. Same Rock To Stand On (vv. 8-13)
Trusting Jesus means not trusting ourselves
“For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:2)
• What does partiality have to do with Christian living? Are you “partial”?
• Does the law really convict you? How, exactly, in your case?
• What’s the matter with “mostly keeping” the law?
• How does our own impending judgment lead us to rely on mercy?
