|James 1||Dale Beaver||07/01/2018||Watch||Listen||Notes
The pace of our endurance is the speed of our growth.
All of God’s children grow by trusting Him in adversity.
[13And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, “God is tempting me.” God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else. 14Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. 15These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death. 16So don’t be misled, my dear brothers and sisters.]
17Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. 18He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.

The life of a Christian is authenticated by his actions.
A faith that saves the sinner is a faith that demonstrates the difference.

James 3:1-12 (Page 1020 in your pew Bible)
Teachers have great influence; exercise it wisely.
Our tongues carry great power.
Wrathful words can contradict faith.
Choose your words wisely…pray before you speak.

Paul looks at our position by grace through faith, whereas James at our practice from that position.
Indwelling Sin, Desperation for Status, Our Spiritual Adversary.
Humility is the effect of faith in the face of fear.
It’s hard to be humble when you’re afraid of missing out.
It’s hard to be humble when your status is based on stuff.
It’s hard to be humble when your priorities are misplaced.
“I will not love a world that crucified Him, neither cherish nor endure the sin that put Him to grief.”
|James 5||Kris Holzmeyer||07/29/2018||Watch||Listen||Notes
To me the second coming is the perpetual light in the path which makes the present bearable. I never lay my head on the pillow without thinking that maybe before the morning breaks, the final morning may have dawned. I never begin my work without thinking that maybe perhaps He may interrupt my work and begin His own.
