May 9 – The Incredible Value of Women

Scripture(s): 2 Timothy 1:1-5 (Acts 16:1-3); Ruth; Hannah; Jehoshaba

I know of no group that judges themselves harsher than women. I know very few women who act proud. I know of no women who believe they never make mistakes. I know many women who doubt their worth. Yet the Bible is full of examples of women who have made profound contributions into the lives of others.

May 2 – Counterfeit Wisdom Just Doesn’t Work

Scripture(s): James 3:13-18

When we talk about living for God we need to address the fact that we can short-circuit discipleship in our life.  We short-circuit discipleship when we put God’s activity into our lives but not His thoughts.  We need to think His thoughts after Him. This caring about God’s opinion is the beginning of wisdom.

April 25 – Solving the Tongue Problem

Scripture(s): James 3:6-12

The Proverbs say that the wise woman builds her house, but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands. How do we do that? We do it by claiming we believe one thing and then regularly doing the opposite. We see this most often in how we use our words.

April 18 – Value What God Values

Scripture(s): James 3:1-5

Matthew 12:35  “The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil. 36  “But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.

April 11 – As Good as Promised (part 2)

Scripture(s): John 20:1-28

The resurrection is the pivotal event of the gospel of Jesus. In it we can see the approval of God upon the sacrifice of His Son. It the resurrection we also see a profound power that calls us to respond.

April 4 – As Good as Promised (part 1)

John 20:1-28

The resurrection is the pivotal event of the gospel of Jesus. In it we can see the approval of God upon the sacrifice of His Son. In the resurrection we also see a profound power that calls us to respond.

March 28 – The Cross, God’s Love Proclaimed

Scripture(s): Romans 5:6-11

We struggle with value. We struggle with valuing ourselves. We struggle with truly valuing others. God doesn’t.

March 21 – The Necessary Proof of Faith

Scripture(s): James 2:14-26

To some, faith is an enigma or an untouchable substance like air. The Scriptures, however, declare that Christian faith can be seen touched and felt. In other words, if you have faith, it should be obvious.

March 14 – What Sin Attacks

Scripture: James 2:8-13

When we talk about solutions to specific sins, it is easy to be overwhelmed by sin after sin.  However, understanding our sin problem as a whole gives us wisdom in dealing with each individual sin.

March 7 – Living in Grace (A Warning)

Scripture(s): James 2:1-7

Everyone wants the blessing of God.  However, there is a right way and a wrong way to seek that blessing.  James identifies a common shortcut that we can be tempted by.  He then challenges us to a better way.

February 28 – Real Christians Prepare their Hearts

Scripture(s): James 1:19-27

In our lives we must make sure that we are truly ready to receive the blessing of God.  That preparation is not by making our houses and barns bigger to hold the stuff.  The preparation is not by planning what we will do with the blessings when they come.  The preparation we need is to make the heart ready to be used by God.

February 21 – Spoiled Pleasure

Scripture(s): James 1:12-18

Is our problem that we seek to be happy, or is our problem that we settle for happiness that will not last?  Even though these verses  continue to talk about struggles, it is these truths which will truly prepare us to also seek real blessings.

February 14 – A For Attitude

Scripture(s): James 1:9-12

Understanding life and its struggles is more that just putting facts together.  We have to interpret those facts. Where does that interpretation happen? That interpretation happens in the crucible of our attitude.

February 7 – Struggling for the Good

Scripture(s): James 1:1-8

Trials are anything which call to us to depend on Jesus to be our true joy rather than a substitute to push back our fears or helplessness. Trials are anything which sand off our self-centered sins and make us more like Jesus.  Trials are anything that demand for us to respond in faith in order for our response to please Jesus. Quite a pickle, aren’t they?! The only way to know if we will walk in faith is to walk through them.

January 17 – A Primer to Understand the Scripture (part 1 of 2)

Scripture(s): 2 Timothy 2:14-17a

The Bible declares to us that all Scripture is inspired by God. This means that the whole Bible gives us what we need to become like Jesus.  Each part of the Bible is a different tool for our growth. Do we know what each tool is good for?
