Honest to Goodness

June 9, 2024 | Part 3

In this message, we learn that authentic faith means making room for God’s wisdom, humility, and goodness in our lives.

These three attributes are characteristic of every person with growing faith. People of authentic faith seek wisdom, humble their pride, and are tempted for good.

“For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.”

James 2:26 (ESV)

SCRIPTURE: James 1:5-18; Ephesians 4:11-16; Jeremiah 9:23-24; James 4:6-10; Genesis 3:1-10 (ESV)

  1. Seek Wisdom
  2. Humble Your Pride
  3. Tempted for Good

Respond to God:

– Ask God for wisdom in your trials.

– Humble yourself so God can lift you up.

– Pursue God’s good gifts and turn away from temptation to sin.
