Message Points

FAITH THAT WORKS
“The Maturing of Faith”
James 1:1-4

Series Introduction: James was the half brother of Jesus and pastor of a Church in Jerusalem. The purpose of the book of James is to practically demonstrate the correlation between a true follower of Jesus and his or her behavior.

Introduction: Trials, problems, disappointments all can be expected in this fallen world, but they don’t have to be wasted. God can use these to develop and mature your faith. Those with a mature faith have the potential to live above trials and not under them.

The Possibilities of Trials

  • They are intended to bring about evaluation (James 1:2a)
  • They are intended to produce joy (James 1:2b)

The Problem with Trials

  • They will come (James 1:2c)
  • They will come in many colors (James 1:2d)

The Process of Trials 

  • Testing your faith (James 1:3a) (1 Peter 1:7)
  • Teaching you patience (James 1:3b)

The Purpose of Trials 

  • To bring about maturity in you: (James 1:4a)

             Through bringing humility
             Through weaning from the things of this world
             Through focusing on the eternal
             Through revealing what you truly love

  • To bring about completion in you: (James 1:4b)

             Through demonstrating the value of God’s blessings
             Through raising to greater usefulness for God’s purposes

Application: When dealing with trials you must look for the possibilities. The only way to see the possibilities is to see the big picture. Would you say, the way you navigate through the trials, problems, and disappointments of your life, prove the genuineness of your faith?

Worship Songs

Raise A Hallelujah

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me!

I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!

Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Let's sing a little louder (Let's sing a little louder)

Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Let's sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder!!

I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!
Oh, I'm gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!

I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah (In the presence of my enemies)
I raise a hallelujah (Louder than the unbelief)
I raise a hallelujah (My weapon is a melody)
I raise a hallelujah (Heaven comes to fight for me)
