James

As we wrap up the letter of James, we are encouraged to press into community, a means of grace God has given to us for our sanctification. Through the fellowship of the saints, we are encouraged to remain faithful through trial, constant through suffering, and to find grace in the midst of our sin. May we be brothers and sisters who point each other to the true big brother, Jesus, who perfectly keeps us until the day of the Lord.

In this portion of the letter, James gives a wake up call to those who have chosen to trust in their own self-reliance over the sovereignty of God. And for those that choose to trust in themselves, sin leads to more and more evil, as the power of their wealth and self-reliance is abused on the backs of those in poverty. But for all who would look to the cross, there is hope in the steadfast love of the Lord, for it is in Him alone that we find our value, dignity, and worth.

The truly wise man is the one who fully depends on God in meekness, humility, and patience, not simply the one who gains more and more knowledge. The foolish man is led by his passions and wrong desires that lead to wrong and selfish actions. God loves us too much to allow us to hold back some of our hearts to give to the world instead of Him. But for those that seek Him, there is much grace to be found. The man who God opposes, the proud man, is the man who thinks he does not need God anyways. 

Listen To Sermon

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. If we seemingly praise Jesus one moment, then proceed to belittle and demean others with our next breath, we show ourselves to be guided by the ways of this age, not the ways of the Kingdom. Our “praise” is also shown to be empty and void. May we be a people who speak life and blessing into the world around us, showing ourselves to be true sons of God the Father.
