You’re listening to a sermon from Mount Lebanon. We’re the Mount and we’re committed to making God’s Word known so that people know God’s truth and are transformed by it. Today, Vicar Adam Lambrecht takes us into James chapter 4 to teach us about true humility and shows us the God of grace who continues to give even more. We’re glad you can enjoy God’s Word with us today.
How does a superhero become a superhero? How does a human live the Christian life? The answer is the same. Something or someone must come to them from the outside and change them from the inside out. As we continue in James we see that this Christian life is a matter of the heart. Pastor Bourman takes us into James 3:13-4:1.
As Christians in this world, we live in a space between "already" and "not yet." We are already children of God, already perfect and holy, already heirs of eternity. We are already all of these things in the sight of God. We already have this status before him. Yet, in this lives that we live we often lead lives that are filled with inconsistencies. At times, we don't live and act like the children of God that we are. We are "not yet" there. James talks to us about those deep inconsistencies that exist in our lives. He writes a powerful and pointed letter to Christians - to us - about the lives that we live in this world. James writes to us about real faith for real life, a faith that works. In this four week series, we'll listen to some of the things that he says to us about our faith.
