Christians are to put off all falsehood and walk in the truth. In today’s lesson we learn that we must mean what we say and that our words must be rooted in God’s truth.
We continue in James 5 today with a command to be patient and how that patience is a reflection of God’s love working through us.
We continue our series today with a closer look at our wealth and possessions. Are you being a good and faithful steward of all that God has given you?
We enter into James chapter 5 today. In this opening passage, James charges those who are putting wealth ahead of the lordship of Jesus Christ to change their ways. We are asked to reflect on how wealth may tempt us today.
Have you made plans for the new year? How do you intend to keep them? James 4:13-17 teaches us today that any planning without God’s consideration is sinful. God wants to be involved with every aspect of our life.
We pick up where we left off in James 4 today. We are taught how slander and judgement of others deceives us into to thinking we are of more value than others. Instead of judging we are to love.
James 4:1-10 teaches us today that conflict in the church is a problem. James tells us why the conflict exists among us and how to solve it.
James 3:13-18 focuses on two different types of wisdom today, earthly and Godly. In this passage he describes some of the traits of each tree so we can discern what type of tree we are and what fruit we are expected to produce.
In today’s passage James portrays how powerful, destructive, and hypocritical our tongues can be. As a Christ follower our words should reflect our faith in Him.
In today’s passage we see that true saving faith will actively express itself in our lives through works that are for good and glorifying to God. Preaching the message is more than just what you say, it is also what you do.
Today we study James 2:1-13. James shows us how partiality is a sin and how we should show love and mercy to all we come in contact with.
James challenges us with three personal tests in chapter 1:26-27. These test are ways in which we can examine ourselves to see whether we are walking in the faith.
In today’s passage, James describes two types of people- those who believe the word, but only hear it, and those who not only believe the word, but they do it! We also get to witness another sister get baptized and share her testimony.
Today James 1:19-21 instructs us with three commands, an explanation as to why to follow those commands, and the actions we must take in order to mature in our faith.
James 1:13-18 helps us shed some light on how temptation enters our lives and our responsibility toward that temptation.
In James 1:5-12 we see how and where our steadfast faith in Christ leads us in this lifetime and into our eternal home.
Today, we get to witness another sister be baptized and share her testimony. James commands us to find joy in all of our trials that we face in our walk with Christ and to know that those trials are helping build endurance to side with Jesus until our work here is done.
In today’s lesson we are introduced to a new series on the book of James, it’s author, and what it means to be a servant of Jesus Christ.
