Bible study: The book of James (part 4)
Faith & Works

Passage: James 1:19-27; 2:14-26

Slow to anger (Jas. 1:19-21)

Hearers and doers (Jas. 1:22-27)

Faith and works (Jas. 2:14-26)

Some useful definitions

Justification: The act whereby God judicially declares a person as guiltless, on the basis of the atonement in the shed blood of Christ
Sanctification: The act whereby God conforms us more and more into the image of Christ (1 Peter 1:16) through the Holy Spirit

Salvation = Justification → Sanctification
Justification = Faith → Works
