James 2:18 ... Someone might say : "You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without your works, and I'll show you my faith by my works.
This verse tells us that faith without works is dead ... inoperative. What are "the works"? They are the same things that Jesus did. Go lay your hands on the sick, pray for them, and they shall recover.
This knowledge isn't obtained by mere intellectual activity through natural schooling. You only obtain it by pursuing after Jesus ... in His Word. Some born again people who are pursuing Him have a vast amount of knowledge, and are really intimate with Him. They talk with Him and He talks with them ... so real in their spirit realm that they are way above where most Christians are in their intimacy with Him.
When we pray and do what we're supposed to do, Jesus can get people to change their minds and become hungry for the Word.
God has been working with the younger people. They are hungry to know and to see the Word manifest and come alive in their lives. They don't want to just look at the Bible and just hear what God is doing in other people's lives ... THEY WANT GOD TO MANIFEST HIMSELF FOR THEM. Isn't this what we all want?
