2nd September 2018 -No shifting shadows with the Lord:

August 30, 2018 Pastor Matt Bishop

When you live in the Love of God you don’t have to worry about the shade obscuring your vision of the Christian life (of which ‘the Lord Jesus Christ’ (James 1:1) is the centre of).  James 1:17, which is part of today’s sermon text, tells us: ‘Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows’. We are in James for the next 5 Sundays.  It’s a book that has been controversial in the church;unnecessarily to my mind given the fact that the shape of our life in God, which James sets out, is a gift from God to God’s redeemed children in Christ. May you grow in your love of God and neighbour as you dwell in James and receive its freedom and truth.
