The Book of James

May 27, 2018 - July 22, 2018

The Book of James is full of practical and challenging insight from James, half-brother of Jesus, that will help every believer grow in their faith and strengthen their walk with Christ.

Week 9: Making Faith Work

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

Week 8: The Life That God Rewards

One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:24-25

Week 7: Submit Yourselves to God

But He gives us more grace. That is why the scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:6-7

Week 6: Two Kinds of Wisdom

James tells us that there are two kinds of wisdom. One type of wisdom that comes from the earth and another type of wisdom that comes from heaven. In this message you will learn what a lifestyle of walking in heavenly wisdom is all about.

Week 5: Taming the Tongue

Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. James 3:10

Week 4: Faith and Deeds

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:14-17

Week 3: Favoritism Forbidden

My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment. James 2:1, 12-13

Week 2: Listening and Doing

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
James 1:22

Week 1: Trials and Temptations

We all face trials and we will all be tempted. Understanding where trials and temptations come from and how to overcome them is the main topic of James’ powerful, opening statements. Let’s become all God’s created us to be by learning have to overcome everything the world throws at us.
