"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

James 1:12-27
If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

It's easy to fall into a faith that believes but doesn't act. It's one thing to love God and it's quite another thing to live for him. When you feel stuck in a season of inaction, how do can you get moving again? As we continue in our study of James, we come to a section rich with familiar phrases like, "be doers of the word" and "let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger." Then James concludes this section in a discussion on what "worthless religion" looks like. Join us as we discern and study what it means to have a faith that "does."
