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.
We discovered over the last 6 weeks in our Louder Than Words series (looking at an ancient letter written by Jesus’ brother James) that what we DO speaks much louder than what we SAY … but we’ve also learned that what we DO is determined by what we really BELIEVE.  Pastor Tim challenges us to wrestle with the notion that the coming return of Jesus at the end of all things should having an impact on how I live today.
