In our world success is often measured by numbers: how many units were sold, how much money was made, how many people attended. This may be a way to measure success in the pursuits of the world but it is not a measurement to be used in the spiritual realm. Attendance figures can be deceptive. We could…

Shared about how I was called brave for taking on such a hard hitting book, so early in my ministry, and that I desired to feed my flock. Using the illustration of Abraham being called faithful before he did anything for God I through Paul's words showed how salvation cones from Faith and not works. Also showing the difference between love and euphoria. Spoke about God being more concerned with our hearts than what we do.

In the preface of his 1522 translation of the New Testament, Luther called James a “right strawy epistle”. Luther drew this conclusion from the passage we have…

Jonah 1:1-16 introduces us to a literary masterpiece. It is rich in irony both poetically and theologically. Jonah, a prophet, is commanded to call Nineveh, the seat of Assyrian culture, to repentenance. However, this divine act of mercy was repulsive to the prophet. So we read of the only prophet who ever tried to run from God. His fleeing the presence of God become illogical and suicidal as he endured loving chastisement through a storm that nearly destroyed his boat. As we learn about Jonah, we begin to understand the sinfulness and smallness of people in conrast to the might, wisdom, and mercy of God. We are left considering whether our faith is big enough to consider the mercy of God?
