Preparing for Worship: July 5, 2015

Our text this week is James 1:16-18, “The Unchanging God.” The most important issue in the believer’s life at any given moment is how we think about God. Last Sunday we saw:

  1. When mindful of temptations, guard your thoughts about God.
  2. When mindful of temptation, remember how temptation operates.
This Sunday we will see:
  1. When mindful of temptation don’t be deceived about God’s intentions.
  • A warning to heed (v. 16)
  • A declaration to heed (v. 17)
  • A gracious purpose to remember (v. 18)

Throughout we will be reminded of the goodness of our God and the unchanging nature of our God. He has always been good, He is good today, and He is good forever. He is not the source of the temptations that lead men to death, and He is the source of the grace and mercy that gives men everlasting life.

A Statement from Pastor Caldwell on the Supreme Court Decision

On June 27, 2015 believers who live in the United States woke up to a new nation. We know, of course, that in one sense it is not new at all. But in terms of the legalization of an abhorrent view of marriage, it is new. Yesterday, the highest court in our land ruled that marriage has now been redefined. What do we make of this?  How do we respond?

Many excellent responses have already been offered (see MacArthur, Piper, Mohler, Moore, etc.). I affirm those responses and would offer a simple word for our own congregation.  

If we have embraced a biblical view of our world then nothing has changed. In fact, though we should be saddened as citizens of the United States, it serves as a good reminder that we are citizens of Heaven. We continue to pray for the salvation of those in high places of leadership and for the peaceful opportunity to carry out our service to God (1 Tim 2:1-2). We also prepare ourselves for suffering and believe that an unashamed and loving declaration of the gospel is exactly what God has designed for a world under the kind of judgment that Romans chapter 1 describes (Rom 1:16-32; 1 Pet 4:1-2). We clearly understand that the temporary flourishing of evil is not the final word (Ps 92:6-8).

We continue to be the best citizens, the most loving neighbors, kind and loving even toward our enemies, and to proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Pet 2:9). We do not despair. Why should we? We, of all men, are the only ones with a genuine hope (1 Thess 4:13). The stars shine brightest on a dark night. Let your light shine against the backdrop of the darkness of a sin- sick world (Matt 5:16). Always be ready to give a defense for the hope that is yours and live in a way that puts to shame the slander that would come from unbelievers (1 Pet 3:15). 

We have never believed that human courts define marriage. The term “Traditional Marriage” has never fully represented what we believe. We know that God defines marriage, that God is the judge of the living and the dead, and that human courts do not determine His perspectives. Therefore, we do not accept that a homosexual relationship is marriage any more than we would accept polygamy as God’s design for marriage, or an incestuous relationship as a valid marriage (Matt 14:4). We will abide by every law of our land that does not require us to violate God’s law. Where such a choice is presented, we will obey God (Acts 4:18-20).

Do not fear little flock, our God is sovereign (Luke 12:32).

In His love,

Pastor Richard

Every trial becomes a platform for temptation. Every test is also an opportunity that our spiritual enemy takes to offer us ways of disobedience. When trials come it is essential that we know and remember what the Bible teaches us about temptation.

This week, Pastor Caldwell will preach from James 1:13-18, “From Trials to Temptation.” We will see where temptations come from, how they operate, and how they are overcome. We will examine God’s word through James in these verses by noting three steps of action:

  1. WHEN MINDFUL OF TEMPTATION GUARD YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT GOD (v. 13)
  2. WHEN MINDFUL OF TEMPTATION REMEMBER HOW SIN OPERATES (vv. 14-15)
  3. WHEN MINDFUL OF TEMPTATION DON’T BE DECEIVED ABOUT GOD’S INTENTIONS (vv. 16-18)

In our sermon this week we learn that the command given to God’s people to walk in truth and love is needful not only for how we deal with genuine brothers and sisters. The command concerning truth and love is essential to dealing with the spiritual dangers that threaten the church. How do a people commanded to walk in truth and love respond to false doctrines and the false teachers that disseminate those doctrines?

Text: 2 John 7-11
Title: “Truth, Love, and Deceivers”

  1. A COMMITMENT TO TRUTH AND LOVE PREPARES THE CHURCH TO WITHSTAND FALSE TEACHERS (vs.7a)
  2. A CONFESSION OF TRUTH AND LOVE IS THE STANDARD FOR IDENTIFYING FALSE TEACHERS (vs.7b)

We will gather this Sunday to hear from James 1:12, “Joy through Trials.” Here, the Holy Spirit gives us a beatitude that captures and summarizes all that we have learned in previous weeks about trials in verses 2-11. We see an amazing promise that gives us certainty that none of the believer’s hardships are purposeless or wasted. The outline is as follows:

  1. The meaning of this blessedness 
  2. The man for this blessedness 
  3. The means for this blessedness 
  4. The manifestation of this blessedness

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here. You can also download the music using the iTunes links below:

Trials often represent a confusing time in the life of a believer. Even with what we know for certain about our trials we find ourselves longing for guidance for the specific decisions our trial has brought to us. God tells us through James what we are to do when we meet with confusion.

James 1:5-8—”Wisdom for Life’s Trials”:

  1. A Recognition 
  2. A Request
  3. An Assurance 
  4. A Qualification

As Christians, we are not to live in an imaginary world. We don’t rely on the flesh, and that includes fleshly imaginations. We stand on the pure, stable, sound, ground of the Word of God. That means that when the pressure is on when it seems that the whole world is falling apart, the thoughts that enter our minds about God and our circumstances are the thoughts that should agree with Scripture. Our view of God must be clear and accurate.

What does that kind of thinking consist of? We find the answer as to how we are to think in the midst of trials in the first chapter of the book of James, which Pastor Caldwell will teach over the next several Sundays. Before we are done with this study we will see 9 key elements that make up a perspective that will honor God in the midst of trials. The outline for his first sermon is below:

James 1:2-4—”Surviving and Thriving in Life’s Trials”

  1. The Command (v. 2a)
  2. The Challenge (v. 2b)
  3. The Comfort (v. 3)
  4. The Concession (v. 4a)
  5. The Construction (v. 4b)

May 10th is Mother’s Day, and for several years now we have taken a moment during the service to honor the mothers at Founders and also allow new families to dedicate themselves to raising their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. We will do this again on Sunday, and Pastor Caldwell’s sermon will follow suit in 1 Timothy 5:3-16 as he discusses “The Real War on Women.” From the specific instruction given for the care of widows we will see what God desires the church to honor in women. We will consider the fact that the real war on women is part of a much larger war. It is part of a satanic war on God’s design for human beings. His message and method are as old as the initial lie (Gen 3:1-7). God’s people must aim to please God in our views of manhood and womanhood, and that requires a discernment found in submission to Scripture.
