Wisdom in Trials

We all go through trials. We learned that last week from James 1:2-4. We even learned the reason we encounter them, to mature our faith. We even learned how to respond in them, with pure joy. So when we are undergoing a trial, how should we pray? Our passage in James 1:5-8 tells us to pray/ask for wisdom, and we must ask in faith. I pray this will be of encouragement to you.

Above and Beyond

In this message, we are challenged by the conclusion of Paul’s prayer to see that God can do far more in our lives to grow us in godliness than we can imagine. His power is amazing.

He concludes with appropriate praise for all that God can do in us as we yield to the work of the Holy Spirit. What is it in the coming year that we will ask God to do in us to mature our faith?

Our Consolation

On this Sunday before Christmas, we consider the account of Simeon who speaks about our consolation. He was looking for the salvation of Israel. He challenges us to consider if in our waiting for Christ we are living a righteous and devout life. We see in this passage his character, his concern, his consecration, and his celebration. I hope you see our consolation this Christmas as we celebrate His birth.

Our Call

Each of has a call of some kind on our lives. The shepherds call was more than just in tending sheep. They had a call to go and be a witness that Christ had been born and then to go and witness to others about the good news. What they had seen and heard resulted in their worship. As Christians, we have the same call to be a witness about Christ and then to worship God because of the good news.
