The Book of James - wk 1
Today we start a new series on the book of James. James is a letter that serves as a how-to manual for the Christian life. When we deal with trials, contentions, and lack of faith, James teaches us that we can still have joy in the midst of our circumstances. The foundation of the book is the importance of faith; faith or the lack thereof can determine the direction of one’s life.
Today we learn that we can have joy in the midst of tribulation when we have a firm foundation of faith.
Seven Signs: The Resurrection
Today we conclude our sermon series for the season of Lent. Today we look at the greatest of Jesus' signs, the greatest miracle, the resurrection of Jesus. The resurrection of Jesus shows us that there is re-creation to come. There is new life to all who believe. The signs in John show us that God is active in the world; now God calls us to be his sign to those around us.

The signs in the Gospel of John show the way to new life in Jesus. Today we look into a conversation between Jesus, his disciples, and a crowd gathered together. Jesus again talks about His death, and why it must happen. The crucifixion shows us God’s judgment of the world. We will see that on the cross, Jesus has drawn everyone to God, no matter who they are or what they have done—and that includes you.
