Count on Lifes Unpredictable Timing

8/4/2019
More
While it’s easy to be happy and trust God while everything is working out according to our plans, mature Christ-followers count on life’s unpredictable timing and keep walking with Jesus even when it seems like life is falling apart. James helps us put our lives in perspective when he says, “Now listen, you who say, “’Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.’ Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your...

Wisdom Don’t Live Life Without It

7/14/2019
More
True Wisdom is more than knowledge gained by life experience – it is also insight and strategies straight from God who created us and knows the best way for us live. In James 3:13-18 we get a glimpse of how wise people think and act, “If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom…” Listen and be encouraged to pursue the pure wisdom of the Lord and live it out for God’s glory, your benefit and the...

7/7/2019
More
The Bible warns us that our words matter. James writes, “And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.” (James 3:6 NLT). While words can be destructive, they can also be encouraging, edifying, educational, healing and helpful. Listen and be encouraged to control your tongue before it destroys your life. Pastor Chris Teien

Real Faith Works - Put your Faith in Action

6/30/2019
More
We know that we can’t do enough good deeds to get ourselves into Heaven, instead we repent and give our lives to Jesus to be saved and experience eternal life with Him. Some people think that faith is all that is required in the Christian life, but James makes it very clear that if you truly have faith it will be evident by the good deeds you do. Some complain that New Testament writers Paul and James contradict each other when it comes to faith and works when they actually complement...

The Short-Sightedness of Prejudice and Favoritism

6/23/2019
More
If we are not careful it is easy to discount the value of people that are not like us or to give preference to rich and influential people over the poor and unknown. It must have been a problem in the early church too since James took time to warn them against doing that in the church and it is a relevant message for us today. When we learn to see people the way God sees them, we will enjoy greater relationships and be better able show Christ-like love. Some awesome people have made life...

God often uses flawed people to accomplish His plans. Often heroes are remembered for one act or season of sacrifice that helped or saved others while others are heroes for investing their lives to bring peace and provisions.

You may not think you have much to offer or you may think you have made too many mistakes to be hero but listen and be encouraged to put faith into action and become someones hero even if you...

Valuing Biblical Marriage and Singleness

5/19/2019
More
God our Heavenly Father has made His design for marriage between one man and one woman clear in the Scriptures He gave us through the Holy Spirit and it was even spoken directly about by Jesus our Savior. While our society seeks to redefine marriage and everyone appears to want to do whatever seems right in their own eyes, Christians ignoring God’s original design for marriage is not wise and will lead to great disappointment. Biblical singleness is even better than Biblical marriage for...

With Jesus in Paradise

Palm Sunday is the day we celebrate that Jesus peacefully rode into Jerusalem on a mission to save His people from the sin that holds them captive and make it possible for them to be reconciled to God. Shortly after his grand entrance Jesus was put on the cross between two sinful criminals. Jesus eventually promised one of those men on the cross next to him that he would be with Jesus in paradise. Where did Jesus go between His death and resurrection? What and where is Paradise and how can...

Quick to Listen, Slow to Speak and Slow to Become Angry?

3/31/2019
More
Everybody seems to be so angry these days and occasionally it is OK to be angry. The Apostle Paul warned: “in your anger do not sin.” Jesus who never sinned was so angry he flipped over the tables of the money changers in the temple and chased them out with a whip. Jesus half-brother James taught, “…You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.” James 1:19-20. There’s an old saying that is wise and true,...

Don’t Let Temptation get the Best of You

3/24/2019
More
Hear ways to avoid giving into temptations that can ruin our lives. In first chapter of the book of James we learn the difference between the testing of our faith and the temptations to sin. To master temptation, you must let Christ master you. God always tests us to bring out the best; Satan tempts us to bring out the worst. Temptation comes in many forms and often at times we least expect it. You may even be tempted to not listen to this message but listen anyway. Pastor Chris Teien
