Sermon Summary

James warns not to issue empty promises, falling into judgement. Genuine faith in Christ is marked by integrity and our deeds will reveal the state of our hearts.

Discuss Together

  • How does James 5:12 challenge the status quo in our current culture?
  • Which "heart issues" make it hard for you to be honest/faithful (fear, greed, shame, pride, etc)?
  • How can we combat the issues of the heart with the gospel as we seek to cultivate integrity?

Pray Together

  • Praise God for his faithfulness, truthfulness, and for keeping his covenant promises
  • Confess any sins exposed by the passage (sins of speech, sins of the heart)
  • Thank Jesus for his atoning work on the cross which cleanses us from unrighteousness
  • Ask the Spirit for strength to obey and power to change
