February 21, 2021

We are able to communicate with people all around the world through social media in a high-tech reality that we never could have imagined just a few years ago. But we also long for a high-touch reality.

Free Resource | Does the Bible Promote Tolerance or Intolerance?
One group says the Bible is a book about love, mercy, and kindness. They think of the story of the Good Samaritan and of Jesus telling us to turn the other cheek. So how could anyone think the Bible prevents a tolerant society? But for another group, the Bible is far from tolerant. There’s the conquest of Canaan. There’s Elijah killing Baal’s prophets by his own hand. And in the New Testament, Jesus talks often about hell. That’s not tolerant. What then can we say in answer to this question?

As we go through this season as a church and in the world at large, we need to think through how we can rebuild biblically, so we're studying Nehemiah. The pandemic has been a challenge for both individuals and ministries, and as we begin to come out of it, we'll need to reconnect and rebuild many ministries and programs.

Here James applies his teaching at a personal level. With all the categories that he's been dealing with, he now comes down to the level of particular, the personal, and the individual.

Instead of speculating on the future, look at what you're going to do right now. Don't let speculation about future possibilities be an excuse to avoid present responsibilities. James teaches us how to plan for the future—God willing.

The Puritans put it best: we are justified by faith alone, but not but the faith that remains alone. Faith must lead to works. Jesus' teaching on this matter is the clearest—he uses the image of a tree and its fruit. If you're really converted, you'll bear the fruit.

A common objection heard today is that there are all different kinds of Christians. Some are more into faith and belief; others are more into social justice and taking care of the poor. James addresses the challenging topic of faith without works.

God is aware of our situations and is watching over us, yet we have difficulties and troubles. Where is God when life hurts? Psalm 121 explores an answer to this question.

In the same way that we should not be biased against the poor, we should not be biased against the rich. You can have a kind of inverse snobbery. We need to love our neighbor, whether they are rich or poor.

What James is saying is that a sure sign of someone who hasn't had the Word implanted in their heart is how they talk. They have a loose tongue, or they talk a good game, or they criticize other people—they haven't bridled their tongue.

When you are dispersed, as so many of us have experienced in recent days, the possibility is that the shape of your faith becomes distorted, inauthentic, or even fake. We need to make sure that we are spiritually fit, and this message will help us lean into ways to grow in our spiritual health.

All Christians sense that this is not our home. In this season, as never before, we all feel that acutely. The group that James is writing to is away from home, spread out, and in the midst of things that are not familiar. There's a great relevance here to what we are going through today.
