06 Aug James (Faith in Action) – Ep 13 – Live as Christ’s Church

Sunday Service: August 6th, 2017
Series: James: Faith In Action
Episode: 13
Speaker: Tim Morey
Scripture Focus: James 5:12-20
Speaker Intro:
This week we wrap it up with James 5:12-20.  As all the epistles seem to do, James comes to the end of his scroll (that’s how I picture it at least) and starts hitting his readers with bullet-point reminders on how they should live as Christ’s church.  We will be highlighting three in particular – that the church might be a community that is trustworthy (we mean what we say), vulnerable (we invite God and others into both highs and lows), and restoring (loving enough to bring correction).

03 Aug rooted and flourishing

If there is any book in the Bible of which we could say that its purpose is to teach us to pray, it would be the Psalms. And the book of Psalms opens with these words, which most Old Testament scholars take to be a thematic summary of the book as a whole:

1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
(Psalm 1:1-3)

A choice is laid out between two ways of living. The first option is to be the person who chooses to walk, stand, or sit in the ways of the sinful. The Psalm goes on to say that this person is like chaff, blown away by the wind.

The second is the person who chooses to delight in and meditate on God’s Word, day and night. This person, the Psalmist tells us, will be like a tree on the bank of a river. This is a key metaphor in a desert climate like Israel, where trees languish for lack of water. Not so the tree on the river bank. Its roots run deep, and it can find water to nourish its leaves and grow its fruit even when other trees might be dry.

So can you, God whispers to us, when you choose to regularly drink from the Scriptures. You will find yourself nourished, even when the world around you is parched. Your roots will be deeper, and you will have resources at hand that you never would if you chose to live for yourself, independent of God’s ways.

The message of Psalm 1 is reminiscent of James (which we will finish this week), with his emphasis on being one who lives in obedience to God’s Word. To live in the way of Jesus, James tells us, is to be a person of the Word – not just hearing it, but doing what it says.

And to be that person, if we add here the wisdom of the Psalmist, is to be a person who meditates on God’s Word. We cannot live the Word if we have not taken time to be shaped by the Word.

As we near the end of our study in James it is worth asking, am I taking time to be shaped by the Scriptures? To meditate on God’s Word, and let it nourish me, shape me, sustain me? To take time for this – even if only for fifteen minutes a day – is to choose a life that is full and flourishing.

Lord bless you friends, and we’ll look forward to being with you this weekend –

Tim
Mt633
