Pressure Points - James
This is the first part, in a two-part series looking at the book of James. James more than any other book in the New Testament, lays out for us what it looks to put our faith in action. Specifically, James gives us wisdom for how we ought to handle the every day pressures of life.
At the beginning of each year, many of us make goals for our lives. We desire a better version of ourselves. But how many of us are investing in goals or habits that benefit us for eternity? In this series we explore spiritual habits for our everyday lives, that won't just benefit us for our present life, but for eternity.
Exiles in Hope - 1 Peter
As Christians, we know this place is not our final destination. We belong to a kingdom, that is not fully realized. In this series we explore what it looks like to live in a world in which we are exiles and how we look not to the things of this world, but to the one to come for hope.
Jesus extended patience and compassion toward his disciples who struggled to understand and believe in the resurrection. If he is able to do extend this toward those who physically saw & touched him, how much more is he willing to extend that same patience and compassion toward us today?
