In this message series we walk verse-by-verse through James' letter--five chapters in five weeks. Taking this approach forces us to think about and deal with things that we might not address otherwise. Instead of picking and choosing what we want to study, we go wherever the text goes. Maybe there are times when you've approached Bible reading like a trip to the buffet. You fill your plate with the stuff that looks good--the stuff that’s easy to digest--but maybe there’s a whole bunch of other stuff that you skip over entirely. By taking the approach that we do in this series, we keep from doing that—from picking and choosing what we like and what we’d rather not deal with. We put every item on our plate that the book of James has to offer us and we consume the whole thing.
We hope you'll pull up a chair and join us! #JamesMCC
WEEK 1: "CHAPTER ONE"
Aaron McClary - August 6, 2017
The first chapter of the book of James carries some powerful messages for those following Jesus. Consider your troubles opportunities for great joy. Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Don’t just listen to God’s word, do what it says. These are just a few examples found in the first 27 verses of James' letter. In this message, we explore each one together.
