James 4:11-12 — Our words reveal our hearts. When we judge others, we elevate ourselves not only above others but also into the very position and place of God.
James 4:1-10 — As we peel back the layers of trouble and conflict in the world, we see that the real source of our troubles is the warring lusts, motivations and passions of the human heart.
Acts 2 — God desires a people who know His presence. The gift of His Holy Spirit at Pentecost demonstrates the promise of His presence and His power with His people.
James 3:13-18 — Wisdom is more than information. Wisdom is demonstrated not in what is known, but in what is shown — wisdom is proven in our lives through action.
James 3:1-12 — Those redeemed by God speak a distinctive language; words of life, hope and forgiveness; words that build up rather than tear down.
James 2:1-13 — We are all equally loved by God and equally in need of His grace. The Gospel has an all-encompassing levelling effect that disqualifies partiality of any kind.
The Bible presents God as an irrepressible giver. He is the God who so loved that He gave his only Son.
The Bible calls us to be hearers and do-ers ("producers") of God's Word. James 1 instructs us to tend to, nurture and watch over the growth of God's Word in our lives by putting it into action.

The Bible describes wisdom as the ability to judge or see correctly and to then follow the right course of action. In a world saturated with knowledge, God’s wisdom is needed by us all.
