Our James learning series is challenging our people towards spiritual maturity - calling us to seek evidence of our faith in our daily lives.
Luis Savery, Community Group Coach and leader shares his thoughts and impression of this sermon.
In all honesty, this sermon made me feel as if I had been lying to myself in regards to having faith in Christ, but also awakened in me to the possibilities of fellowship with Christ.
Recently I have been meditating on how much I need God. I've been feeling like my words are empty, and my faith has been drained.
From the outside some might perceive me as someone who has learned to trust and love God in many ways. The truth is, I have been feeling distant from God and can't even tell if I'm trusting Him at times.
This sermon opened my eyes to focus on loving and believing in the who (Jesus), rather than the what (Christianity).
I have been deeply thinking about what I truly love. Where, on what and with whom is my time spent? How has my faith been evident in my daily interaction (Work, Home, and Ministry)?
The reality is that our love for Jesus should be evident to the world around us, and I'm afraid often that's not the case.
