Sermon Description

Setting goals, creating timelines, making plans – these are responsible activities of everyday life. But if we are not careful, they are also occasions for sin. You may not be actively spurning the Lord or rebelling against his will, but a passive dismissal of the Lord’s will when making plans is equally sinful.

Sermon Description

Conflict is an inevitable aspect of life. Whether it's between lovers, friends, families, or nations. Sadly, churches can be hotspots for fighting and quarreling. Conflict between Christians can give us such a head(heart)ache. But God gives more grace – sufficient grace to humble ourselves and make peace.

Sermon Description

James would agree that we are saved by faith and not by works, but he would add that not all faith is the kind that saves. Concerned that some have narrowly redefined faith to merely saying the right words, James argues that the faith that saves is the kind that works – that produces good works.

Sermon Description

Once we accept the inevitability of trials in the Christian life (James 1:2), we are left with the question of how to remain steadfast – to stand up under them. How do we endure our trials? By better understanding the nature of trials in light of the God who ordains them.

Sermon Description

Why does God let us suffer? Why does he have us go through trials? That is more than a theoretical question. For many Christians, that is a question birthed out of lived experience and deep pain. Thankfully, there is an answer. But, according to James, to rightly understand the purpose of our trials and to withstand their pressure, we need to respond rightly.

Sermon Description

Read in isolation, the Proverbs 31 woman is often depicted as the blueprint for a biblical wife. But read in the context of Proverbs, this woman turns out to be – not an ideal standard for all women to attain or a measuring stick for men to use – but rather she is another personification of Wisdom. This time set in a heroic poem that valorizes the qualities of a wise life – a life to which every Christian should aspire.

Sermon Description

From ancient times, friendship has been considered one of the most valuable of human relationships. But sadly, we live in a day and age where friendship has been trivialized. We don’t know what it means anymore to have friends or to be a friend. You can have a thousand of them on social media – but how many true friends are in your life?
