Men's Bible Study with Brad Randall
James: Week 7 - Wisdom vs. Knowledge
November 4, 2020 • Brad Randall
God hasn’t given everyone a gifted mind, but all believers are called to seek godly wisdom. There’s a vast difference between the two! Unlike earthly knowledge, wisdom is never contained only in our minds. Instead, wisdom is lived out in our actions and leads to works of righteousness that pleases God.
James: Week 6 - Taming Our Tongue
October 28, 2020 • Brad Randall
Though small in size, our tongue has great power and influence. It can lead in the right direction, but can lead in the wrong direction as well. It has the ability to build others, but can also be an instrument of destruction. However, the tongue is still submissive to the heart. For the mature believer, the tongue is tamed by the Holy Spirit. However, those who do not believe in Christ or those who are spiritually immature allow the tongue to run wild and do the work of evil.
James: Week 5 - Living Faith
October 21, 2020 • Brad Randall
Faith isn’t just about words that come out of our mouth or what stirs us emotionally. Genuine faith displays itself by how we live our life. Those who have truly trusted in the Gospel will see and meet needs of others in the Body of Christ, as well as the world. Faith that doesn’t lead to good works is dead. But, genuine faith in the Gospel is alive!
James: Week 4 - Avoid Partiality
October 14, 2020 • Brad Randall
In the Kingdom of God, God’s presence is more important than anyone else’s presence. We are called to treat each other as equals regardless of any exterior character such as financial status, influence, race, or appearance. This is how the Church is truly different than the world! It allows the church to see people as God sees them and to care for others in need.
James: Week 3 - Don’t Bite the Bait!
October 7, 2020 • Brad Randall
God’s desire is always holiness. In order for us to abstain from sin, it’s important to know where temptations come from and how to overcome them. The good news is that God has given us what we need to live out what James’s calls “pure religion” that impacts God’s eternal Kingdom.
James: Week 2
September 30, 2020 • Brad Randall
Being a follower of Christ doesn’t exempt us from the trials and troubles of life, but belonging to Him does mean we can have joy in the midst of the trials. James’s words to troubled Christians scattered from their home still counsel us when we experience trials because of our faith in Jesus.
