This is the last of a series of messages on the Book of James, called “Reality Check.” Today we discover a fact that every person should know: We are utterly dependent upon God! In James 5 there are five windows that people can look through to see just how dependent on Him we are.
James 4 digs down deep into the reasons for divisions and contentions in the church. He also explains how these heart issues affect our prayers and our relationship with God. This sermon brings light and life to one of the most difficult-to-understand and misunderstood passages in the New Testament.
James 3:1-12 speaks about the incredible power of the tongue to cause damage. This sermon sheds light on that power–including the harmful effects of gossip–and encourages us to use the power of our tongues to share God’s grace with the listener.
It’s wrong to be partial to some people over others. That’s what it says in the second chapter of the Book of James. But aren’t we better than that? And if we’re partial toward some and reject others, how would we know that? It has mega implications for everyone to see how this piece of Scripture applies to our lives!
Today begins a new Fall sermon series on the Book of James in the Bible. And this first message answers a universal question: how should I view hard times, trials, and what could they produce positively in my life? There’s actually a formula in James 1 to help us in the midst of trials.
