Giving @CSBC

Why We Give Giving is an an act of worship and obedience from a heart surrendered to Christ ... a choice we make to follow God's instruction for us. Pastor Justin reminds us often that the Lord wants us to give from our hearts. God always honors and blesses obedience, we don't give to get. We give out of our need to act on our faith. God uses those resources for His glory and to further His Kingdom.
Title: RELAX (Aaron Rogers)
Book: James
Scripture: James 1:1-4

Notice this.
Pain always has Joy. Joy does not NEED pain.

Trials here is the greek word - peirasmos (PI-RAS-MAS) - Consider it Joy when God wants to draw you closer to God’s end goal.
Thats the text.

God is more concern with us becoming more like God’s self than God sending trials.

Vs 2 - Response (consider it all joy)
Vs 3 - Reason - (Reason for response)
Vs 4 - Result - (I’m equipped to finish)

What is missing? What is the gap between your trust and faith working together?

Background of James:

The Big Idea:
Listen to Jesus and do what he says.

How James Fits into God’s Big Story:
-Inward faith produces outward actions
-Selfishness causes division, but obedience to God brings Unity
-God brings peace to us personally and to our relationships

How James Fits My Story:
-When we have a need, Jesus wants us to ask Him for help.
-Our words and actions can influence people to move closer to or further from Jesus.
-God doesn’t judge anyone based on wealth or poverty and neither should we.

James Let church in Jerusalem - The epicenter of Christianity. James wore the letter to Jewish Christians all around the Mediterranean region and beyond.
