Series-The Book of James: Faith + Action

This Sunday we will conclude our study of the Book of James by seeing another area of life that we are called to submit to God. Last week we talked about submitting our treasure– money and possessions– to God. This is no easy task. And this week, we address, perhaps, an even more difficult area of life that we need to submit to God: suffering.

James ends his book where he started by talking about trials and testing. He was writing to Christians who were undergoing great persecution and suffering, and James wanted to focus their attention on God.

He is writing to us as well. We all experience suffering in life. In fact, many of us are in the midst of very difficult and trying situations right now. What does James say to us?

To prepare for this Sunday, read James 5:7-20 and James 1:2-4 (you will see how he begins and ends on the same topic). And come Sunday ready to lay whatever you are dealing with at the foot of the cross. My prayer is that you will find encouragement and hope in the words James shares– the words God wants you to hear this Sunday.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series-The Book of James: Faith + Action

As we continue our study of the Book of James, we will see another area of life that James say we need to submit to God.

In James 5, James hits a topic that captures the hearts and minds of all of us– a topic that effects our relationship with God and with others. This is a topic that we all need to hear about, yet we all think we are handling just fine thank you. Both James and Jesus would disagree.

To prepare for this Sunday, read James 5:1-6 and realize that James is talking to you. He’s talking to me, too. We want to wiggle out of these words with rationalizations and justifications, but we cannot.

Looking forward to Sunday! (even though it is a challenging topic!)

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

August 9th News- The Book of James: Worldliness & Godliness

August 6, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Series-The Book of James: Faith + Action

This week, we will continue our study of the Book of James by focusing on James 4:1-12

In this passage James shows what happens when we follow the false wisdom of the world rather than the true wisdom of God (last week-James 3:13-18). He then explains the spiritual consequences of following the wisdom of the world. Finally, he will show us how we can “submit to God” and experience the freedom that comes from godliness.

To prepare, read James4:1-12.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

August 2nd News- The Book of James: False Wisdom & True Wisdom

July 29, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Series-The Book of James: Faith + Action

This week, we will continue our study of the Book of James by focusing on James 3:13-18

In this passage James compares two kinds of wisdom: false wisdom & true wisdom. In this world, there are many different ideas about how we should live. James tells us there is a right way to live and a wrong way. What’s the difference? Why is it important? How do we know if we are living a life of true wisdom?

To prepare, read James 3:13-18 and also Proverbs 2:1-11 and Proverbs 8:22-36.

I also want to thanks Troy Smith for preaching the last two weeks while we were away on our family vacation. My prayer is that we all continue to ask God to reveal himself to us more and more as we study the Book of James together.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
