Meet James the Subversive

Date: Sunday 14 Aug 2016


Rupert Ward

James 1:1-11.

We are offered a choice, between seeing things through the world’s perspective, and seeing things through God’s eyes. There is an invitation to commit to pursuing God’s ways, rather than looking to compromise with or be guided by the world.

James is full of challenging statements and instructions: I want to try and get us to think of these as provocations to check our “lenses” rather than merely instructions we have to try and will our selves to believe and obey. I think often we allow our culture to teach us how to think, and then come to the Bible to teach us what to think – which often doesn’t make sense through our worldly lenses. I’d love for James to being to teach us how to think God’s way.
