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.
One of the clearest teachings in the Bible is God’s desire for humanity to be united and free from prejudice … in fact, the Good News about Jesus is deeply concerned with the idea that He paid the price so that we could individually and corporately be restored to God and (through that) restored to one another.  Today we discuss this idea and how it should impact our lives.
