05 22-11 pm the face of favoritism

  1. 1. The Face of Favoritism<br />James 2:1-13<br />
  2. 2. James 2:1-13<br />1 My brothers, hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ without showing favoritism. <br />2 For suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring, dressed in fine clothes, and a poor man dressed in dirty clothes also comes in.<br />
  3. 3. James 2:1-13<br />3 If you look with favor on the man wearing the fine clothes so that you say, "Sit here in a good place," and yet you say to the poor man, "Stand over there," or, "Sit here on the floor by my footstool," <br />4 haven't you discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?<br />
  4. 4. James 2:1-13<br />5 Listen, my dear brothers: Didn't God choose the poor in this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom that He has promised to those who love Him? <br />6 Yet you dishonored that poor man. Don't the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts? <br />7 Don't they blaspheme the noble name that you bear? <br />
  5. 5. James 2:1-13<br />8 If you really carry out the royal law prescribed in Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself , you are doing well. <br />9 But if you show favoritism, you commit sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.<br />
  6. 6. James 2:1-13<br />10 For whoever keeps the entire law, yet fails in one point, is guilty of [breaking it] all. <br />11 For He who said, Do not commit adultery , also said, Do not murder. So if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you are a lawbreaker.<br />
  7. 7. James 2:1-13<br />12 Speak and act as those who will be judged by the law of freedom. <br />13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who hasn't shown mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.<br />
  8. 8. The Face of Favoritism<br />My Standard <br />Hold Your Faith<br />Romans 3:10<br /> as it is written: <br />    There is no one righteous, not even one; <br />Romans 3:23<br />23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.<br />Romans 6:23<br />23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. <br />Romans 5:8<br />8 But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us!<br />Ephesians 2:8-9<br />8 For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift— 9 not from works, so that no one can boast. <br />2 Corinthians 5:17<br />17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come. <br />John 3:3<br />3 Jesus replied, " I assure you: Unless someone is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." <br />Ezekiel 36:26<br />26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. <br />
