James 1:5,6

James 1:5,6 (KJV)
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

James 1:21-23

James 1:21-23 (KJV)
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

Obey The Voice Of The Lord

Please know that when we stop listening to God, He also stops working in our lives. Therefore, the enemy has access to our lives, in order to hurt us physically and spiritually.

James 1:26,27

James 1:26,27 (KJV)
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

No More Cussing or Filthy Language

One thing that was spoken by Paul to the Colossians above is “filthy communication out of your mouth”. Of which also James taught.

The Lusts Of The Flesh

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh.

James 1:12

James 1:12 (KJV)
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Evangelism Is Not Easy But Worth It

While in the service of God there will be persecution, even to the point of death. Nobody said that being a witness for Christ will come easy, instead it comes with a lot of hard work and tears.

James 1:21-22

James 1:21-22 (KJV)
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

A True Christian

Now that we have defined what a true Christian is, I would like you to think to yourself if you are living a life of a Christian.

Seven Disciples Were Called

Because Stephen was full of the Holy Ghost, he was able to do great wonders and miracles among the people, much like Jesus did.

What Would You Do For Jesus?

What if you felt that God was calling you to help a family member, friend, co-worker or neighbor in need. Would you do it?

Lead Us Not Into Temptation

Jesus explained what it takes to follow Him. He said, “he that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.”

James 1:12-15

James 1:12-15 (KJV)
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

Gain Wisdom And Keep It

Those that look to Christ are safely guided by God. Because we are quick to remember Him and what He teaches us through scripture and prayer, we draw nearer to Him daily.

James 1:22-24

James 1:22-24 (KJV)
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

Bible Study And Prayer

Be Leary about attending any Bible study where prayer is not emphasized. We never want to be led astray by men and women’s own understanding avoid from God.

Endure In Your Faith For Salvation

The more we seek the Lord in prayer and the Bible, our faith will grow stronger. We will not be like some, where “cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts.

James 1:13-15

James 1:13-15 (KJV)
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

Sexual Sin Can Send A Person To Hell

As the Bible teaches, adultery, fornication and pornography is not tolerated with God and therefore, these people will feel the wrath of God in judgement, lest they repent.

Know The Lord And Serve Him

I pray that God will have His way in my life and yours. I pray that a revival will happen in the hearts of all people that proclaim to know Him.

People’s Idols Come Before God

David declared, “Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.”

Come And Be Fed

God has spoken to my mind that I might see His glorious presence. I gave the Lord free access to my heart and have not looked back.

I Call Upon God, Who Saves

God’s ways are good. He is the meaning of all good things. The Father’s great love changes lives. What the Lord offers, people would run for, if they truly knew the meaning.

Repent And Heed The Words Of God

The Lord God knows who loves or hates His words. Most people would rather walk in the ways of the world then change their ways.

Evangelize: Butte Street

We encouraged these people to go church and listen to what their friend has to say about Jesus. That He is the way and we are only His messengers.

Thankful For All Fathers

Oh God, my Heavenly Father, hallowed be your Name. We honor You. All praise to Your Holy Name. You are greater than all men. How great Thou art.
