This week James teaches us about Mature Priorities. A child cannot think beyond instant gratification. One of the evidences of maturity, then, is when someone begins to think consequentially, long-term, eternally even. This week, we’ll study James 4:13-5:6 and see what the gospel does to our life priorities.

This week James teaches us about Mature Desires. The modern person doesn’t tend to think our feelings are really ever wrong, but that feelings and desires are simply the product of who we are. But the Bible says that sin is so pervasive in the world that it’s even corrupted our desires. This week we’ll contrast our natural desires with our designed desires and see how the gospel helps us bridge the gap. We’ll study James 4:1-10.

This week James teaches us about Mature Speech. Sticks and stones can only break bones. Words are MUCH more powerful. They can shape – build up or destroy – your entire sense of self. Even more, they shape our opinion of God. This week we’ll study James 3:1-12.

The Book of James: For Maturing Audiences Only. This week James (Jesus’ brother and the 1st Bishop of the Christian Church in Jerusalem) is teaching us about not showing favoritism. The goal is that Christians would evaluate people on the basis of grace, not like the world, which judges people on the basis of what others can do for us. This week, under the theme “Mature Kindness,” we’ll study James 2:1-13.

The Book of James: For Maturing Audiences Only. James is a massively practical book of the Bible that teaches us what our lives would look like if we fully believed, i.e. took to heart and put into practice, the gospel of Jesus Christ. This week’s focus will be on James 1:19-27, as we look at what prevents us from “Mature Actions.”

The sinful nature kicks back against earthly authority, but God’s design for submission is a beautiful thing that channels many blessings. We’ll examine Romans 13:1-7.

FINAL WEEK in the series. We started the series with a summary of the gospel as it relates to the city and we’ll end the series with a concluding piece of wisdom on how if God’s people are doing what they’re supposed to be doing, the city will be blessed. Our worship this week will be anchored in Proverbs 11:10-11.

This week we’ll worship under the theme of “Social Healing: The gospel creates alleviates social brokenness.” and we’ll be studying Amos 5:7-15. Amos is the main prophet that God used to call his people to repentance on social injustice. This isn’t an ancient issue – it’s relevant today and important that we at St. Marcus be leaders on this.
