Who do you think you are? How you see yourself will affect how you live… and how you relate to others… and how you engage in every other aspect of your life. God speaks to us about this clearly and compellingly in the book of Ephesians. We’ll walk through this book, strengthening our identity (alive in Christ) and focusing our purpose (living in the world) ​- and doing so all together.

Pay attention to what you pay attention to. Mat and Dan discuss the discipline of our attention.

I DON’T KNOW WHY ANYONE WOULD ‘READ ALONG.’
All this ‘Christmas Story’ stuff is the same old story.
Nothing new here.
Like read Luke 1 verse 3. Same old stuff right?

As we are in the week leading to Thanksgiving, we invite you to read Psalm 103. In fact, I encourage you to read it every day… yep, every day. It will be a great prompt for you to orient your soul to blessing, thanking and praising the Lord.One of my professors in seminary called Psalm 103, in his opinion, “the loveliest of all the Psalms”, and he strongly encouraged us to memorize it (also a good idea).

This week we cover the fact that our life is vapor or mist compared to the eternity of God’s plan.

Please read along with us in James 4:13-17We often make plans for ourselves, but in this section James is cautioning believers about making decisions independent of God. The proper Christian response is to humbly come before the Lord to ask about His plans. What is His mission and direction for our life? It has been often quoted during our James study, but Matthew 6:26-30 really speaks to this fact:

Please read along with us in James 4:1-10 as we prepare for the sermon on Sunday. It’s wonderful that we have this time to prepare in advance to receive God’s word and have the Spirit work in our hearts. This passage points to the reality that our time on Earth is limited and what we do with it matters. Focusing on what truly brings peace and joy will certainly store for us treasure in Heaven. Reading ahead a little, James 4:14 reads, “…What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”

This week we get to talk about controlling the tongue.  Please read along with us in James 3:1-12. If you have ever had young children you quickly realize that the “little sponges” are hanging on every word that Mommy and Daddy say.  Children show you where your heart really is; they act as a mirror for our souls.  If we are quick to anger or say hurtful things, they mirror it.  At the same time we have all known Godly men and women who are slow to anger and abound in love, these wise believers set a wonderful example of bridling their tongues.

Works of Grace

This week we continue in James 2:14-26 on how works play out with our faith. Please read the passage along with us. This week may seem like a simple passage, culminating in the truth that faith without works is dead. However, there is a lot of rich theology and old testament references in this passage. It is important to remember Jesus’ words in John 15:1-5:

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing…”

We all face various forms of temptation throughout this life and this section gives us hope in the Word of Life.

Read James 1:12-18.

Reflection Questions:

  1. Verses 12-15 show the progression of sin that takes place. Read Psalm 1 – what correlations do you see between the passages? Notice the progression of Walk, Stand & Sit that Psalm 1:1 shows. Have you seen this progression in yourself or others? What does this passage show about worldly council versus Christian community? How do we avoid accidentally falling to temptation?
