FAITH PRODUCES HUMILITY

This is the Seventh message of a series on the topic of “FAITH” from the book of James. This month’s message is “Faith Produces Humility”. This is the day, the time and the hour to hear and receive the very Word of God and believe it and stand upon the Word of God.

As you read the following inspired scriptures written by Paul the Apostle in the Book of James referring to Faith Produces Humility; “WILL WE OPEN OUR EARS TO HEAR WHAT SAYS THE WORD OF GOD?”  “OR WILL WE CHOSE TO KEEP OUR EARS AND HEART CLOSED TO GOD” IT’S YOUR CHOICE.
