Faith Works: The Gospel-Shaped Life
Sermon series based on James 1-5 // January 8, 2017 - April 9, 2017
Winter 2017: We explore the tangible outworking of God's good news through the book of James. Called 'the book of straw' by Martin Luther for its apparent lack of explicit references to Christian doctrine, the cross and salvation - James' words are in fact saturated with the teachings of Jesus and relentlessly call his readers to a life shaped by the Gospel itself.
Written by Jesus' younger brother, who doubted and mocked until he witnessed the resurrection, this letter serves as a spiritual awakening to the church under cultural pressure to compromise.
