Today's Truth: Draw Near to God" Sermon Series: Faith at Work – Living the Kingdom of God

Today's Truth: Taming the Tongue" Sermon Series: Faith at Work – Living the Kingdom of God

When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts.

Today's Truth: Faith that Works, Part 2" Sermon Series: Faith at Work – Living the Kingdom of God

But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless[a]? Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.

The Sermon

Psalm 61
Psalm 46
James 2:14-19

Today's Truth: Quick to Listen, Slow to Speak" Sermon Series: Faith at Work – Living the Kingdom of God

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

Today's Truth: Quick to Listen, Slow to Speak" Sermon Series: Faith at Work – Living the Kingdom of God

Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

The Sermon

Psalm 146:6-9
Matthew 25:31-46 (NET)
James 1:19-27 (NET)

Today's Truth:

“Doers who Act"

Moses said to God, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.’

Today's Truth:

"What Does the With-God Life Look Like? Hint: it might be different than you think!"

if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

Psalm 33:1-5

Today's Truth:

“Because of Who God Is..."

Moses said to God, “If I go to the Israelites and tell them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’—what should I say to them?”

God said to Moses, “I am that I am.” And he said, “You must say this to the Israelites, ‘I am has sent me to you.’”  God also said to Moses, “You must say this to the Israelites, ‘The Lord—the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial from generation to generation.’
