Doers of the Word (James 1:22-25)
Many professing Christians evaluate their love for Jesus based upon their feelings for and emotions about Him. We see in today’s text, though, that our love for Jesus is measured by our obedience to His Word. An exposition of James 1:22-25.
The Implanted Word (James 1:19-21)
In today’s text, James instructs his readers to be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. There is much more to this than it may at first appear. An exposition of James 1: 19-21.
God: The Good Gift Giver (James 1:17-18)
In this rich passage, we see the confluence of God’s goodness, immutability, and sovereignty. His gifts to us continually flow down up to and including that of our own regeneration. An exposition of James 1:17-18.
The Pernicious Progression of Temptation (James 1:13-16)
Being tempted in and of itself is not a sin. Left unchecked, however, temptation brings forth sin and sin brings forth death. If we are not diligent to kill sin, it will kill us. An exposition of James 1:13-16.
Blessings, Trials, and Crowns (James 1:12)
**Due to technical difficulties, the quality of this recording is less than usual. Thank you for your patience as we work on fixing this issue.**
This verse marks James' conclusion of his treatment of trials. Trials in this life are tests of our faith but God sustains us through them. Genuine believers will persevere through these trials and as a reward, God will grant us the crown which is eternal life with Jesus Christ. An exposition of James 1:12.
The Trials of Poverty and Wealth (James 1:9-11)
It is likely easy for us to see how poverty can be a trial, but did you know that wealth is also a trial for the believer? Both poverty and wealth present unique trials and unique temptations. An exposition of James 1:9-11.
