James

James 3:1-12, 5:12 (Tongue)

July 8, 2018

In the previous chapter, James demonstrated that genuine faith is always accompanied by obedience to Christ. He now turns his attention to one of the greatest works: our speech. The tongue is one of the smallest members of the body, but it wields tremendous power in our lives. He presses his readers to consider their words carefully because what we say is a reflection of the heart—for good or for bad.

In this text, James continues to address one of the primary issues of the early church: the mistreatment of the poor. More specifically, he prohibits followers of Christ from showing partiality or favoritism to anyone. Building on James' example from the first century, we then explore the dangers of partiality in our own culture. As citizens of another Kingdom, we are called to live in such a way that reflects the union we now share in Christ Jesus.

James

James 2:14-26 (Works)

June 3, 2018

In this section, James warns his readers against an understanding of faith apart from works. Drawing upon examples from the issues facing the first century church and the Old Testament, he shows that a faith disconnected from obedience to God is not true faith at all. In this message, we also explore the doctrine of justification from the writings of Paul and James, showing a continuity throughout all of Scripture.
