  • Quick Slow Slow (James 1:19-20)

    Contributed by Darrell Ferguson on Jun 10, 2021

    We all struggle with sinful anger. For some it’s violent and red-faced; for others it’s a quiet, building resentment. Whatever the form, James teaches us how to overcome it in this passage.

    James 1:19 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the more

    Contributed by Scott Maze on Jun 4, 2021

    This is the 9th message in the series, 'Building Relationships that Last.'

    Anger is an emotion that most of us as human beings deal with. However, if we do not manage this emotion the right way, it will certainly hamper our relationships with people. Why do we get angry? There are several reasons why we could get angry. Let me mention a few. We may get angry if someone more

  • 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. For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness more

  • The Danger Of Anger Series

    Contributed by David Owens on Mar 15, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    God has given us the ability to feel anger for good reasons. But these feelings of anger need to be controlled and channeled in the right direction.

    A. One day a woman was telling her friend that she had called her husband at work to tell him she had been in a fender bender with their new car. 1. Her friend asked her if her husband got mad. 2. The wife said, “Well, he didn’t say much, but his boss later told me that the smoke alarm went off in more

    Contributed by Darian Catron on Feb 4, 2021

    Is anger a sin? Is it wrong for a Christian to get angry? Or is anger simply an emotion that we need to put God in charge of?

  • 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.

    HOOKED Week 3 “Reeled In” July 16 2017 Pastor Timothy Porter Text: James 1:12-20 Luke 4:13 INTRODUCTION: Today I’m going to talk about fishing again. Fishing is a popular subject in the Bible. Maybe that’s why I like to fish. I always tell people fishing is a biblical sport. I’ve more

    Contributed by Dr. Craig Nelson on Aug 27, 2020
    based on 3 ratings

    One of the greatest truths of Christianity is God's promise to always be with the Born-Again Christian in every situation and circumstance of life. This is one truth that is known, yet somehow is hard to truly believe!

    "Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation." (Isa 12:2 NIV) In a Harris Poll taken for the American Psychiatric Association (Stress in America Survey 1/2012), it was discovered that 81% of more

  • 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
