  • Perseverance Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jun 16, 2021
     | 31 views

    3. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. If we meet this testing (“the trying of your faith”) correctly, it will produce unswerving consistency (“patience” or “steadfastness”)

    Title: Perseverance Text: James:1:3-4 (KJV) 3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. Introduction F. J. A. Hort, the New Testament scholar, writes: “The Christian must expect to ...read more

  • Turing Trials Into Triumphs Series

    Contributed by David Owens on Jun 7, 2021
     | 343 views

    The first subject that James addresses in his letter is how to face our trials. His suggestion is shocking: we should welcome our trials with joy. But his reason for the suggestion makes sense when you understand things from God's perspective.

    A. In Max Lucado’s book, In The Eye Of The Storm, he tells a story about a parakeet named Chippie. 1. Chippie the parakeet never saw it coming -one second he was peacefully perched in his cage, and the next he was sucked in, washed up and blown over. 2. The problem began when Chippie’s owner ...read more

    In the following sermon we are going to look at the second of Groeschel’s dangerous prayers, “Break Me” that is based on Jesus’ breaking of the bread in 1 Corinthians 11:24.

    Dangerous Prayers – Break me O Lord! 1 Corinthians 11:24 Online Sermon: http://www.mckeesfamily.com/?page_id=3567 Last sermon we focused on the first of three dangerous prayers taken from Psalms 139 entitled “Search Me.” From this prayer we learned that the cure for safe, lukewarm prayers ...read more

  • Persistently Patient Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 31, 2021
     | 394 views

    Those who do not learn this lesson, and who just cannot accept their limitations, can never become mature adults, let alone mature Christians. Maturity is directly dependent upon one's patience.

    All our lives we are being tested on our ability to wait. Those who fail to learn early become candidates for insanity. Nothing is more frustrating than to have an impatient mind in a world where you cannot control all that is necessary to fulfill all your desires and dreams. Gutzon Borglum, who ...read more

  • Who Can Be Perfect? Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 31, 2021
     | 176 views

    One of the most wide spread heresies among Christians is the idea that all God cares about is getting people saved. The Bible, however, makes it clear that God is not satisfied until His children are perfected, and made complete and mature in Christ.

    Mozart was only 25 years old when he settled in Vienna in 1781. Ten years later he was dead, but his commitment to perfection made his mark live on and crown him as one of the princes of music. Those ten years were years of struggle for survival. He lived in poverty with little food, and often ...read more

  • Successful Suffering Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 31, 2021
     | 717 views

    The difference between tragedy and triumph is all in how you count your trials. James says by an act of the will count it all joy when tried.

    Imagine the testing of the body in such a sport as football. To be on your feet and seconds later brought to the ground hard and fast. Then to get up and do it again, and again, and again, but constantly moving forward. All of that falling is not what wins the game, but whether or not you win ...read more

  • Don't Waste Anything Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 31, 2021
     | 488 views

    James says to Christians who are struggling with life's adversities-don't waste anything in life-not even your negative experiences, for they contain great potential.

    Marcus Bach in his book The Power of Perception tells of how great worth is found in waste. An old lead and zinc mine had been abandoned for years. It appeared a worthless worn out pit with all its value exhausted. But when man developed a new need, a need for Tungsten, the waste deposits from ...read more

  • The Crying Of The Wolf At Midnight

    Contributed by Justin Steckbauer on Mar 30, 2021
     | 168 views

    There is a crying in the night. A quiet lament of the soul. You can sense it at three in the morning, and the hour of the wolf is upon you. All the thoughts of life and the daily parade rumble through like a freight train.

    There is a crying in the night. A quiet lament of the soul. You can sense it at three in the morning, and the hour of the wolf is upon you. All the thoughts of life and the daily parade rumble through like a freight train. Looking out the window, all is dark. But something compels you to ...read more

     | 364 views

    “The Christian must expect to be jostled by trials on the Christian way.” All kinds of experiences will come to us. There will be the test of our sorrows and disappointments that threaten to take away our faith. There will be the test of the seductions which seek to lure us from the right way.

    Title: Perseverance Text: James:1:3-4 (KJV) 3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

  • Wait For It...

    Contributed by Dr. Jonathan L Vorce on Mar 19, 2021
     | 1,335 views

    Patience perfects Christian character and teaches us how to trust in the Lord. Patience is the tool that God often uses to mature us in Him.

    James 1:2-4 Introductory Story A man and his wife are awakened at 3 a.m. by a loud pounding on their door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger in the pouring rain is asking for a push. “Not a chance,” says the husband- “It’s three o’clock in the morning!” He slams the ...read more

  • The Providence And Protection Of God Series

    Contributed by Christian Cheong on Mar 18, 2021
     | 986 views

    God in His providence provided the help Paul would need, through his nephew, the centurion and the commander. God protected Paul with 470 soldiers against the 40 men who wanted to kill him. God is in control of our trials.

    LET US PRAY: Grant us the faith to believe you and trust you fully, for all that you’ve revealed to us in your holy Word. May we be enlightened by your Word again and be encouraged today. Bless this time, we pray, in Jesus’ Name, AMEN. --------------- We saw last week how Paul was rescued from ...read more

    The lesson on how to suffer successfully involves the whole of one's spiritual life and relationship to God. In learning this lesson we will learn that which is necessary to be a complete and entire Christian.

    Imagine the testing of the body in such a sport as football. To be on your feet and seconds later brought to the ground hard and fast.

  • The Kind Of Person God Protects Series

    Contributed by James Wallace on Feb 17, 2021
     | 1,070 views

    Many of the promises of God's protection or provision in the Bible are actually conditional. They absolutely don't apply to anybody and everybody. Jesus shows us in John 6 exactly what kind of people can expect His protection and provision, and what kind of people can't.

    Psalm 91 has always, from very early in my Christian life, been one of my favorite Psalms, because it speaks so beautifully and certainly of the Lord’s protection. I mean, just listen to it—it’s makes for beautiful poetry as well as for comforting thoughts—“He who dwells in the shelter of the ...read more

    In fact, growing numbers of people are saying that worry and stress related to coronavirus have negatively impacted their mental health. Regardless of where you think you are going or how you are feeling, James has a word for all those who find themselves in the midst of great trials.

    In this short book of James, 108 verses, James the brother of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Pastor of the first church at Jerusalem address the subject of Christianity from a very practical view. He does not try to debate philosophy and teach doctrinal theology. He simply states in chapter one ...read more
