Everyone knows what it’s like to feel judged. We can be honest about that. We’re less likely to admit when we’ve been judgmental towards others. Tune in to this week’s SermonCast to learn how the gospel rescues us from judgmental attitudes.
Different people think of God in different ways. For some, God is a grandfatherly man upstairs. For others, God is an angry deity just waiting for us to trip up. James challenges those notions with a vision of God’s deep passion for people, a vision of a God who’d rather have friends than servants.
Everyone wants to live the good life.
But what if the good life isn’t what you thought?
Everyone knows what it feels like to be hurt by someone’s tongue. And chances are, we’ve all used our tongues to hurt someone else. That’s something we need to be honest about. And once we’re willing to be honest, we’re ready to hear the good news: Jesus came to save our tongues.
Sometimes we treat Christian faith like a theology test.
As if it all depends on how much you know.
But what if following Jesus isn’t only about what you know?
What if following Jesus is about doing something with that knowledge?
