James – Ultimate friendship

James 4:1-12 We live in a world in which there is conflict on all sorts of levels – between countries, in communities, in marriages and families, at work, in friendships, and even among believers. What does God think of conflict? Where does it come from? How can we resolve it? This passage gives us the answers.

Habakkuk – the prayer (Lunchtime)

Habakkuk 3:1-16a Samuel Beckett’s play ‘Waiting for Godot’ is about two tramps, in despair, waiting for someone to show up, who never does. Believers can sometimes feel like that – waiting for God to show up in a world of evil and suffering. Habakkuk felt that way. But he ends his book assured that God will come, and finding joy and strength in God as he waits.

James – Saving Faith

James 2:14-26 Jesus warned that some will get to the gates of heaven only to discover, to their horror, that their faith is not the real deal, and it’s too late. James shares his concern. There is dead faith and living faith. We need to make sure we’ve got the right one.
