Share with Friends… Sermon Summary Last Sunday we completed a 13-part series on the New Testament book written by and bearing the name of Jesus’ little brother, James. We’ve all heard the phrase, “Seeing is believing.”, but James thoroughly disproves it. James spent more than 30 years seeing perfection—watching Jesus “up close and personal”—and yet […]

Share with Friends… Sermon Summary In James 5:13-20, Jesus’ brother warns his readers of the numerous challenges to their faith.

Share with Friends… Sermon Summary As we have discovered in our study of the book of James, James makes it clear that our faith should influence how we live. We are to be “doers” of the word, and not “hearers” only; there should be a correlation between our faith and our lifestyle (or “works”). As […]

Share with Friends… Sermon Summary James is one of those Biblical authors who doesn’t pull any punches. And in James 2, he has a lot to say about the sin of prejudice, which was just as prevalent in his day as it is in the world today. If we are going to follow Jesus’ teachings, […]
