James: Epistle of Law and Liberty
Oaths and Anointings
Light use of oaths is a declaration of independence from God.
God’s Righteous Judgments
Patience means recognizing that there can be no peace without judgment.
This Mist of Life and the Will of God
We don't merely preface our plans with "if the Lord wills" but we want embedded in our character the knowledge that our lives are under God's control.
The Real Holy War
A holy war is underway in our lives and we are either on one side or the other. We are either aiding and abetting the enemy, or God.
Two Kinds of Wisdom
Meekness does not mean weakness or resignation, but it is the harnessing of godly strength. We demonstrate our wisdom and godliness by meekness.
Voyage to Victory
Nothing is more lovely than a Christian whose conversation is filled with grace and truth.
Faith and Works
Christ does good things in us; we deny that we’re in Christ if we don’t do His good works.
The Royal Law
Many people believe we can distinguish love and law; however, love is the fulfilling of the law.
The Law of Liberty
By His Word, God has brought us forth for the purpose of bearing fruit. There's nothing worse than bringing shame to the name of Christ by our moral hypocrisy.
The Crown of Life
Double-mindedness in our theology leads to instability in every other area of our lives.
