  • Anger Management Series

    Contributed by Jim Keegan on Apr 2, 2021

    Anger is a two-edged sword: our disciplined responses to conflict can reflect spiritual wisdom and bear witness to the transforming power of grace. How well we control anger can reveal a lot about our spiritual health.

    An OR nurse in Georgia tells the story of a couple arriving at the hospital, both of them with gunshot wounds. The husband had overslept on his first day on the job because his wife forgot to set the alarm, and he expressed his displeasure by shooting her in the arm. Not to be outdone, she more

  • Angry Saints Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 31, 2021

    James does not say we are to eliminate anger. He says we are to be slow to anger. James is too realistic and practical to think that the saints will never feel angry.

    Near the end of the last century a group of minors in a mid-Western state became angry. They expressed that anger by igniting a carload of coal and pushing it down the mine shaft. Like most who act in anger, they could not foresee the long range consequences of their action. When the burning coal more

  • How To Be A Biblical Believer Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 31, 2021

    In verse 25 James sums up the two requirements for being a truly biblical believer. Be receptive and be responsive. You start with a positive attitude and follow through with practical action.

    Can a Christian be non-biblical? Can he defend teachings and practices that are contrary to Scripture? Can he reject those who are taught in God's Word? The Bible itself and history answer, yes. Yes it is possible to be a Christian who is more in love with his own opinions than with the more

  • Lesson 13 - The Manner Of Response (James 1.19-21) Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Mar 26, 2021

    The mention of the “word of truth” in verse 18 leads James to devote a lengthy section to a matter close to his heart -- the appropriate Christian response to God’s Word. James stresses that the Word’s purpose is to be obeyed.

    Tom Lowe 2/1/2021 LESSON 13 - THE MANNER OF RESPONSE (James 1.19-21) Text James 1:19-21, KJV 19. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20.

  • Reeled In Series

    Contributed by Rev. Timothy Porter on Jan 13, 2021

    Well, what if I told you that someone’s trying to catch you? What if I told you that someone is tying a fly just for you. The fly is individualized, it’s customized, and the fly will be presented to you over and over.

  • Listening And Doing

    Contributed by Rev. Matthew Parker on Jan 26, 2020

    Acting on faith waters faith. Listening to sermons and reading the Bible and doing nothing in response leads to...nothing. God wants way more than nothing for His people. So He's given us the gift and calling of being doers of the Word and not only hearers.

    Sermon for January 26, 2020 - Listening and Doing [I am thankful to William Barclay's exposition of James chapter 1, which influences much of this message directly and indirectly.] Did you know that God truly cares about every aspect of your life? Sometimes people say that God is too big or more
