Living (the) Truth

He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.” (James 1:18, NLT)

God’s “true word!” Man o’ man, is truth hard to come by these days!? Everyone seems to have an agenda – from marketing companies to politicians to universities to the media to Russian hackers! Most of the time I feel like a cow being prodded along…headed to someplace scary.

Living (the) TruthThat’s why I love the book of James. We’ll starting a study on this book Sunday, “Living (the) Truth.” James doesn’t beat around the bush and he doesn’t sugar-coat things.  Here’s the Cliff’s Notes: Do you have faith? Good! Cuz you’re gonna need it. Life’s tough.

In fact, before we get halfway through the first chapter James has already pointed out the three biggest challenges we humans face: difficult situations (trials), finances, and temptations.

Only the believer, who has the “true word,” has the divine tools to rise above these tests. God has given us these because he loves us and wants us to succeed: “Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.” (James 1:17, NLT)

If you’re in the midst of hard times, financial worries, or temptation, join us Sunday and find out God’s plan for your success.
