Our new Sermon series takes us through the book of JAMES, a brother of Jesus and an amazing leader with a very practical mindset. But most importantly to mention is that James embraced the Love of God as something very special and dear to his heart. Out of this Love from God James urges his readers to put faith into action, simply because God loves us.
With this Love of God in mind, our Discussion Prompts will focus on one important aspect:
=> Temptations & Trials are part of life.
The question that follows is: How does a relationship with Jesus change the way we walk through those Temptations and Trials?
Let’s look at Trials first:
What do can you do now to be able to be PREPARED for future trials? How does knowing that God loves you strengthen you for the tough times? How do you strengthen your faith today?
What about Temptations?
Pastor Bryce said that “A YES to God is a NO to lesser things”. This is easier said than done. It needs to be applied and practiced on a daily basis. Here are some tools to help you with it:
- Starve the Beast
What habit(s) do you have to deplete of its source of energy, in order to put to death (Romans 8:13) the sin associate with it? What tempts you the most? And what does it mean to not feed it (starve the temptation)?
- Feed the Spirit
How do you feed your relationship with Christ, in order to be filled with HIS Spirit (Ephesians 5:18)? What do you do to nurture your relationship with God?
Through the Bible in one Year
Join us in reading through the entire Bible in one year. Each day of this plan guides you through passages from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing you to see connections between the history of our faith, and the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. Readings average four chapters in length, so it is posible to do. When you use the YouVersion Bible App, you can even have the app read the Bible text to you – very useful when you are in the car or otherwise occupied with your hand.
All you need to do is click the link to the Bible Plan, which should lead you straight to the Bible app. Your two options are now (1) to read the plan on your own, one day at the time. Or (2) you can make it more fun and rewarding, by sharing the plan with one or more friends, and then even “Talk about it”.
