  • 9. Making Faith Real.<br />4. Our Faith is Not in Faith. <br />1 Cor. 2:4-5 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on man’s wisdom but on God’s power. <br />
  • 10. Making Faith Real.<br />5. Faith is Trust to the Extent I Act. <br />James 2:17 In the same way, faith by itself if it is not accompanied by action, is dead!<br />James 2:18 You show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.<br />
