I hope everyone will be able to join me this Sunday morning at Dakota for our fall start up and a return to the final few messages from the Epistle of James Series.
This week’s sermon is entitled; “Above All … Do Not Swear”
You may recall that James is writing to mostly Jewish believers who find themselves scattered like the seeds of a dandelion into all the foreign nations around Israel as a result of persecution in Jerusalem. He is not instructing them on how to be saved, that is a settled issue for everyone who has come to know Jesus; he is teaching them how to live, what to do and what not to do, what is God honouring behaviour and what is sinful and of the flesh.
He has a lot to say about how Christians are to speak both to outsiders and to fellow members of the Body of Christ and this week’s text is a final instruction along these lines.
Would you be in attendance this week as we begin the final quarter of 2016?
Do you promise? Do you swear? ;-)
