A Polite Christian Moves Forward – Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. – James 3:5-6 James nails it in chapter 3 as he mentions what I have noticed to be one of the greatest hindrances to Christians moving forward.

A Practicing Christian Moves Forward – Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. – James 2:17-18 In Chapter 2 we learn that true faith is working faith.

This week’s devotions about being willing to move forward come from Southern Hills Baptist Church in Las Vegas. In it, we’ll see advice from the book of James as to how we can move forward towards whatever our next step is.

Future   In grade school, we’re taught to start thinking about what we want to be when we grow up. In college, the pressure is on the make a wise life choice to get ahead. It is wired into us from our culture to plan for our future and strive towards it.   What do we do when God says no? What do we do when the things we want for our life are not the things God…

Relationships   I’m not a people person, but I get this one. It’s easy when you value a relationship to put it before God. Relationships are fragile and sometimes, the temptation to protect them can lead us to value someone else over God in our life. We sacrifice what we know to be right to keep a relationship close to us.   This is really evident among single…

We learned about Judas and his struggle to submit to Jesus. It had nothing to do with who Jesus was, but more so about what Judas didn’t want to give up. He let go of the most meaningful relationship to hold on to something much more trivial. So, this week we’re going to look at some of the things we hold on to that keep us from truly having a deeper relationship with…
