James talks about prayer and the reasons we must be a people who are known by it in today’s verses. Prayer is, in its simplest form, communication with God, talking with Him. It is not meditation or reflection, it is communication with the one who created us. Prayer can be silent or audible, in private or public, formal or informal. In James 1 he s…
 
Today, James tells us something that Jesus first said, “let your yes be yes and your no be no.” How easy is it now to add a few words to a statement trying to strengthen what we say? How often do we try to quote statistics (that may or may not be true) or use words like “they say…” when we don’t know who “they” are? When James talks about oaths it …
 
Patience is one of the fruits that the Holy Spirit brings when we are filled by and led by God. Today our whole society is built around not being patient, yet James says it is vital in the life of those who follow Jesus. Patience enables us to stand with God in situations we do not understand.

Money can be dangerous, one writer says, "The heart is deceptive. A love of money is deadly, and it's only the gospel that can deliver us from this." The default position of our hearts is usually one that thinks we are doing well; James reminds us that we need to check our hearts (what we do with money in this case) to see what you truly love. WATC…
 
In our world today, people have a lot of questions about God. When we do not face our doubts or fears about our beliefs, we lack a truly genuine faith (trust). When we work through honest (not self-serving) doubts, that effort can begin to grow our trust in God. Too many people think that in order to believe in Jesus, they have to turn their minds …
 
James asks a lot of hard questions throughout his short letter, questions that are very practical to our lives today. He shows us that how we live in the world (false wisdom or true wisdom) are both built on a view of God and how He behaves in the world. Today, James will make us look at our lives in regard to arrogance and how we think we have ult…
 
There are 3 primary tools in regard to growing in true wisdom: The Scriptures – The point of the Scriptures is Jesus. The community of the church – If we want to walk in true wisdom, we surround ourselves with people who love Jesus and submit to His Word. Those who are further along than us in “the faith” and in life – We should seek guidance, in h…
 
James, in the previous verses, has talked about how true and real Christianity will come out in our words, actions, and hearts. In James Chapter 2 he finished speaking about the poor and our heart issues, now he moves that to our words (our speech). James shows that walking with Christ comes through a humility, our salvation is not about our self-s…

James makes us ask ourselves hard questions about whether we truly believe what we say we believe; the book is a great look at whether we are truly followers of Christ. At the end of most of these weeks in James there is supposed to be introspective thinking; asking if we truly belong to Jesus or not. James does his best to show us the reality of w…
 
If you go to most dictionaries today, they will define religion as, “an organized system of beliefs and rituals centering on a supernatural being or beings.” Is that all religion is or meant to be, an organized system of beliefs or rituals?

The book of Judges contains some of the most scandalous and strange stories in the entire Bible. In one of the darkest periods in the history of God’s people, we’ll see what God can do with the most broken of heroes—and behind every hero, we’ll see a God who remains faithful even when we are faithless. Through it all, we’ll be reminded that no huma…
 
James continues in a linear line tying all the pieces of his letter together as he moves forward. Looking at the last 3 weeks we see James moving us into the reasons why we read and listen to God’s word and how it leads to being born again. James 1:18 “Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits…

We love heroic tales of men and women who sacrifice themselves for the good of others and accomplish great feats. Our world is full of trouble and pain and we look everywhere for a savior to bring relief and give us hope. The problem with all human heroes, is that they're nothing but broken saviors.על ידי Adam Young
 
E. May Grimes, “Speak, Lord, in the stillness, While I wait on Thee; Hushed my heart to listen In expectancy.” Being quick to listen was very important to a Jewish people because, when James was written, there was no printing press. The Old Testament scriptures were not something every family had a copy of in their homes. They were an oral culture …
 
The book of James is written to a people who loved God and yet were dispersed in the world because of trouble and trials. The trials were literal (as many of them were hauled into court) and metaphorical (as it spoke about the hardship of daily lives). James speaks about the trials, and turns us towards understand two types of grace that God brings…
 
While God allows us to go through trials (so that He would be glorified and we would grow in wisdom), He never tempts us to sin in those circumstances. All trials inherently test us in how we respond. Will we respond out of our own foolishness or in the wisdom God offers? Every trial and difficult circumstance ultimately exposes our own desires. WA…
 
There are trials in our lives where God is being good and growing us. Parents many times today will not deal with kids at their weak points because they don’t want to deal with a meltdown, but our heavenly Father will push on our weak points in order to grow us. Trials are inevitable and trials can bring wisdom. Note: Please excuse the short audio …
 
The reading of James 1:5-8 can be scary if we do not understand the context of James’ words. Many people have read these verses and thought that they were never allowed to have any doubts or worries because God would not listen to them when they did. But what we see is that faith is the word for trust and faith consists of more than intellectual be…
 
This week launches our 19 week series through the book of James, a book written by Jesus’ own half-brother. James moved from seeing Jesus not just as a family member, but as God and Savior. In his opening verses, James encourages readers to “count it all joy” as we come face to face with trials and suffering. The word “count” (NIV says “consider”) …
 
Psalm 135 would have been sung after the ascent to Jerusalem. It’s a psalm that encourages true worship in which praise is the inevitable expression of a relationship with the living God and creator of the universe. God’s people would be reminded of the abundant reasons they have for praising and blessing “the name of the Lord,” and that our God is…
