Recap for James 1-3

February 3, 2021 • Brad Randall • James 1-3 (ESV)

After a few months break, it was time to review seven weeks of the Book of James. The brother of Jesus wrote this letter to scattered believers who were experiencing persecution and trials. He reminded them, and reminds us, that God uses trials to bring about spiritual maturity that is necessary for Him to use us in great ways for His Kingdom. This maturity helps us to see each other the way God sees us and shows us our desperate need for wisdom that can only come from the Spirit living in us.

The Reward is Coming

May 5, 2021 • Brad Randall

Everyone knows what it’s like to patiently and anxiously wait on something. The Book of Esther tells about Mordecai helping to save the life of the king only to be forgotten about, but only for a little while. Eventually, the king was reminded and Mordecai received a great reward. For those that follow Jesus, our reward is greater than we could ever deserve. It is unhindered presence and glory of God for eternity! Recorded live on May 5, 2021 at 6:30 PM

Holy Hunger for God

April 28, 2021 • Brad Randall

Esther, Mordecai, and the entire nation of Israel was in danger. Action was needed in order for their lives to be saved and they immediately took the right step. Before they went to man, they went to God with fasting and prayer! This is an action we are called to as believers as well. Ultimately, fasting and prayer is about knowing God more. However, we also see in God’s Word how God listens to our requests and faithfully answers our cries the way He did in the Book of Esther. Recorded live on April 28, 2021 at 6:30 PM

God’s Plan & His People

April 21, 2021 • Brad Randall

God’s Plan and Purpose is tightly interwoven throughout the Book of Esther. Esther was shown favor to be in the position of queen, but was then faced with the decision whether or not to risk her life on behalf of her people, the Jews. Mordecai reminded Esther of God’s promise for the Jews and how God would rescue them. However, she needed to consider that she had become queen for this very moment and opportunity for God to use her to deliver the Jews. Recorded live on April 21, 2021 at 6:30 PM
