Sermon Notes

The letter of James (in the New Testament) shows one of the church’s early pastors going about his work of confronting, diagnosing, and dealing with areas of misbelief & misbehavior that had turned up in congregations committed to his care. DEEP & LIVING WISDOM is the topic. Now WISDOM is not primarily knowing the truth, although it certainly includes that. It is also the skill of living out that truth. What good is TRUTH if we don’t know how to live it out? And what good is INTENTION if we can’t sustain it? Join Grace Family for this series of conversations… seeking God’s WISDOM so our lives will become Louder Than Words.
How we live is the best indicator of what we truly believe, not necessarily what we say about our beliefs.  In essence, what we do is louder than our words.  As we begin exploring this ancient letter, we dive into the deep end of looking at the trials we face in this life and how our response to them declares who we’re trusting to see us through these difficult times.
