The Image of Christ - Part 3
22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. 23 For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. 24 You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.
27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead.
