Several weeks ago I announced that my entire series of sermon notes on the book of Hebrews was available on my website. Today I’m happy to tell you that all twenty-two lessons on the book of James are now posted. If you are unfamiliar about how to access these documents, simply click on Resources at the top of the Home page, and then on Articles. Look under Biblical Studies, and at the bottom of the list you will see both Hebrews and James. These twenty-two articles are essentially a verse-by-verse analysis of James. I hope and pray you will find them helpful in your life or ministry, or in both.

When he described his ministry in the city of Corinth he said that he was with them “in weakness and in fear and in much trembling” (1 Cor. 2:3). I don’t need to tell any of you what it is like to feel weak and inadequate and overwhelmed. B...Read More ➔
As most of you know by now, I concluded my sermon series on Romans on August 21st. The final three verses of Romans are a glorious summation of the greatness and glory of our God. In this brief article I simply want to highlight what Paul says about the ability or power of God. I trust you have noticed in Scripture how often the ability or power of God is emphasized and extolled.

This comes in the form of an addition to its definition of “girl,” one meaning of which we are now told is “a person whose gender id...Read More ➔
