Sermons

In The World Not Of It

The message today was on James 4. Noah Daniels preached to us about self-centeredness, our words, and planning our lives.

A main we we sin is to not have God at the top of out love list, loving ourselves more than Him.

Do we desire the things of the world or the things of God?

Do we judge others with our words?

Do we treat God like an add-on in our lives, like a vending machine we can ask things to get what we want?

Do we make plans without God, or with Him as a side, rather than as our focus?

He provides our daily bread.

Here is the bulletin.

Mind Your Words

Words can have a powerful impact.

Words can create a chain reaction in us and in people around us.

Here are some ways to use our tongues well.

  1. Our words need to be rooted in Christ.
  2. Be intentional about seeing God in others.
  3. Practice saying the right things; we need to be a people that speak words of blessing into the hearts of humanity.

Take Action

Today’s passage is James 2:14-26.

Do we believe Jesus has saved us, really?  If we really believe Christ has saved us, our lives need to change as a result.

Loving Jesus is not always an easy thing; why is that?

Four ways to be a people of action:

  1. You must know the Word in order to do the Word.
  2. Surround yourself with people who will stretch your faith.
  3. Continually examine your life for areas that are uncommitted.
  4. In both action and word, commit your self to Christ.

Are we fully committed to Him, in all areas of our lives? See also Revelation 3:14-18. Are we lukewarm?

Here is the bulletin for this week.
