  23. 25. Mark 1:21-28 <ul><li>21They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. 23Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out, 24&quot;What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth?

  27. 29. What I believe about Jesus Result Action Belief
  28. 30. Faith Leads to Action <ul><li>James 2:14-24 </li></ul>
  29. 31. James 2:14 - 24 <ul><li>  14What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? 15Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. 16If one of you says to him, &quot;Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,&quot; but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? 17In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. </li></ul>
  30. 32. James 2:14 - 24 <ul><li>  18But someone will say, &quot;You have faith; I have deeds.&quot; Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. 19You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. </li></ul>
  31. 33. James 2:14 - 24 <ul><li>20You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? 21Was not our ancestor Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23And the scripture was fulfilled that says, &quot;Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,&quot; and he was called God's friend. 24You see that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone. </li></ul>
  32. 34. What I Believe About Christ <ul><li>He is the model </li></ul><ul><li>for my life </li></ul><ul><li>He is able to </li></ul><ul><li>direct my paths </li></ul><ul><li>He knows what </li></ul><ul><li>is best for me </li></ul><ul><li>He saved me </li></ul><ul><li>I try to emulate </li></ul><ul><li>His character </li></ul><ul><li>I use His word </li></ul><ul><li>to be my guide </li></ul><ul><li>I ask Him and </li></ul><ul><li>not anyone else </li></ul><ul><li>I live my life with </li></ul><ul><li>confidence and am </li></ul><ul><li>willing to take </li></ul><ul><li>risks in His name </li></ul>Action Based on my Belief My enemies are now my friends I make better decisions I don’t have anxiety about big decisions I am teaching this Sunday School Class Results of my Actions
  33. 35. Homework <ul><li>Are you experiencing the power of Christ to overcome the situations in your life? If not, why not? </li></ul><ul><li>Can others see the power of Christ in your life? </li></ul>
