Take Stock and Look Up

Romans 4:18-25

Richard Owen | Sunday February 7, 2021 | Miscellaneous

Like Abraham, we must face the facts - the facts make us more aware of our need for God. Yet we should continue to believe God, so let’s look up and be strengthened in our faith.

Restoring Others

James 5:19-20

Dan Maton | Sunday January 31, 2021 | James

God delights in restoring those who have wandered away. We should be a people of real concern, who care for those wandering from the truth; a people of real discretion in confronting them; and a people of real zeal for bringing them back.

Keeeeep Praying!

James 5:13-18

Richard Owen | Sunday January 24, 2021 | James

James encourages us to pray. He tells us to pray for ourselves and for one another, and the sick are to call for the elders to pray for them. We are to come to God in faith, in repentance, in honesty and in humility.

Ben Gibbins | Sunday January 17, 2021 | James

We should be trustworthy at all times, and therefore have no need to take oaths. If we feel the need to take oaths then it suggests that our word cannot be trusted otherwise.

Dan Maton | Sunday January 10, 2021 | James

Some of us may have been excluded for being Christians, whilst others may have experienced more intense suffering. James calls us to be patient, but he is not insensitive to suffering, nor is he telling us to be inactive. To cope with suffering, we need to learn how to lament. Our ultimate hope is the return of Jesus.

We should not put our trust or find our security in possessions. We should be rich towards God, and generous with our wealth. We should not be complicit in oppressing the poor by our shopping habits. God is not against us having money, but wants us to use wealth for his glory and his kingdom.

We are told to love one another, bear with one another and accept one another because God has first loved, accepted and forgiven us. Do we know that we are loved, accepted and forgiven by God every moment?

Because God came as both Jesus (Saviour) and Immanuel (God with us) we can know him and be saved from our sins.

Who is in Control?

James 3:13-17

Richard Owen | Sunday December 13, 2020 | James

God is in control, and Jesus relied totally on God. James isn’t telling us not to plan ahead, but warning us against the arrogance of thinking we are lord of our own lives. If we don’t know God then we can know him today. If we do know God then we can trust him today.

The One About Judging

James 4:11-12

Ben Gibbins | Sunday December 6, 2020 | James

If we focus on other people’s faults, we don’t keep our eyes on what we should be doing. We shouldn’t judge others because when we do, we are looking in the wrong place with a wrong attitude, we are putting ourselves above the law, and we damage church unity. We should deal with our own faults, loving others instead of judging, and remembering that it’s up to God to judge.

The Exalted One

Acts 2:22-37

Roger Bye | Sunday November 22, 2020 | Miscellaneous

We mustn’t have a domesticated view of Jesus. He is exalted in heaven, and our appropriate response is one of worship and repentance. He is also enthroned, and so we should live as a community of kingdom people. And he is also active, pouring out his Spirit. We may be in Lockdown, but Heaven is still open.

Chris Chart | Sunday November 15, 2020 | James

Many of our desires are good, but we are looking in the wrong place to satisfy them. We need to remember to ask God. God gives us his Spirit, and we are invited to humble ourselves and draw near to God.

Wisdom Revisited

James 3:13-18

Dan Maton | Sunday November 8, 2020 | James

James is addressing people who may be experience many big changes in their lives and are not copying or responding well, so he points them to the wisdom of God - its source, which is Jesus who is the wisdom of God; its character; and its outcome. We can bless the world around us by making peace because we have listened to Jesus.

The Tongue

James 3:1-12

Kieran Crow | Sunday November 1, 2020 | James

Just as a horse’s bit and a ship’s rudder can control the direction of the horse or ship, so the tongue has a great implication to the direction of our lives. We can try our hardest to control our tongue, but it cannot be tamed. James warns us that how we use the tongue is important, and although we are all judged by the same standard, teachers will be judged more strictly.

We are God’s handiwork, saved by faith but saved for good works.

Richard Owen | Sunday October 18, 2020 | James

James gives us an encouragement - to love our neighbours whether they’re similar to us or not; a challenge - not to show favouritism, which can be a lot more subtle than in the example James gives; and an assurance - mercy triumphs over judgment, so we no longer have to strive to be accepted.

Just Do It

James 1:19-27

Grant Riley | Sunday October 11, 2020 | James

We need to change not just our actions but also our hearts, which we do by humbly accepting the word planted in us. We accept this by obeying it. True religion involves a change in the way we speak, a concern for the most vulnerable and keeping ourselves from being corrupted by the world.
