  • Father Of Lights Series

    Contributed by Matthew Kratz on Jan 1, 2020

    Someone shows that they are a follower of the "Father of Lights" through their: 1) Words (James 1:19-21), 2) Walk (James 1:22-25), and 3) Works (James 1:26-27).

    James 1:17-27 [17] Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. [18] Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. [19] more

    Contributed by Damien Saylor on Dec 4, 2019

    Sin is kept in secret, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. We must be willing to recognize it for Repentance to begin.

    Sermon - desiring God - Carnal nature is what each of us was born into. - Labeling it like that makes it sound like it truly is, bad. - Then we go into the atmosphere of the church. Sin would be the least thing we desire. Well, it should be! - Now we take in account of more

  • You Just Don't Get It, Do You? Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Feb 14, 2020

    They are so hungry that they miss the point Jesus is trying to make. Will we miss that point, too?

    Tuesday of the 6th Week in Course 2020 “You Just Don’t Get It” I’ve been a teacher pretty much all my career, at all levels except elementary school.

    Contributed by J Jeffrey Smead on Jan 18, 2009
    based on 270 ratings

    Some people look at themselves, at their image, as though they were looking into a very tiny mirror. You know the mirror I'm talking about. Every woman seems to have one. I know my mother would always have one buried somewhere inside her purse. Updated January 2020.

    The Mirror (Short Homily) James 1:16-27 What image do you see ... when you look in a mirror? Who is that person ... in the reflection? Paul speaks of looking into a darkened mirror: BIBLE "For now we see through a mirror, darkly; but then face to face (Pause) now I know in part; but more

  • Choosing The Right Gift Series

    Contributed by Charles Wilkerson on Jul 26, 2009

    2nd in a series on James for summer 2009

    During my undergrad years at Cal State Hayward I read about an experiment to determine if rats would seek out new places of safety when faced with danger.

  • Obey The Mirror! Series

    Contributed by Kyle Gray on May 19, 2009
    based on 5 ratings

    Scripture is like a mirror, we can choose to believe what is revealed or reject it and walk away.

He was in fact, a pillar in the early church as Paul tells us in Galatians 2:9 Jesus appeared to him (1 Corinthians 15:7) after more

  • Don't Be Deceived

    Contributed by Steve Shepherd on Nov 20, 2008
    based on 41 ratings

    In our text, I see several thoughts about God, which the world distorts or tries to deceive us. 1- Good is from God - praise Him! 2- Truth is from God - praise Him! 3- Life is from God - praise Him!

    INTRO.- Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers. I believe that some people do want to deceive others for one reason or another. It could be for money, a vote or something else. ILL.- A politician was running for re-election and was talking at a campaign stop to his constituents. "My opponent has more
