The Light of The World
During the season of Advent we cultivate and pay attention to the longings of our heart. Longings for a hope that does not disappoint. For love that is unconditional. For joy that rests not upon circumstance. And for peace, all things as they were meant to be. While the world may send us in multiple directions to satisfy these longings, the Scriptures point us to a helpless baby in a manger in Bethlehem, for “in Him was life, and the life was the light of the world.” (John 1:4)

Active Faith: Wholehearted Life in the Book of James
New Testament scholar and author Earl Palmer writes, “This is the book of plain talk in the New Testament and one of the best cures for religious, political and social straitjackets…James is an original…and he has written a book sure to offend everyone in some way.” James “offends” us in the best possible way, he makes us uncomfortable if our words of faith are not matched by works of faith. He does not allow more than a few words to pass, before he pauses as if to say – “Okay, if you say you understand this, show me how you will live in light of it.” It’s the kind of discomfort that produces experiential faith, which is the only faith that really matters. The only kind of faith that produces wholehearted life in us, and through us.Go to series page
