What goes together

I invite you to read Thomas Constable’s commentary on James 2:18 (p. 32) as you prepare to teach the LifeWay lesson, “Show Me Your Faith,” based on James 2:14-26. Given the carnal behavior of many Christians today, the issue of assurance may come up in people’s minds as you teach about works. Constable’s comments may help you prepare. The LifeWay commentary briefly mentions the security of a believer.

The Lifeway plan suggests an opening using the idea of “opposites attract”. The idea is that faith and works attract. I think I will change this and use the concept of “what goes together?” as illustrated in the following PPT slide.
