Faith Under Construction Series
April 21, 2021 – July 21, 2021

Road construction zones are everywhere in Oklahoma City, and growing by the day. Although we do not like dealing with the hassles of road construction, most of us like the results. The same is true in developing a faith that works in life.

We all could use some practical help in handling stress, resisting temptation, controlling anger, confronting prejudice, handling money, and planning wisely. The New Testament letter of James guides us through these faith construction zones with simple and direct teaching on these relevant topics and more. Join us through the next few weeks in the “Faith Under Construction” devotional series from the Epistle of James.

My prayer for all of us through this series is this: Lord, Build us. We are your temple. So, build your temple. We are your people. Build your people. Construct us, brick by brick. Pound the nails into the wood planks, as you construct us. Burn the impurities out of us through the fires of affliction. Save us from the pit of hell, by burning through us now, and thus transforming us, by the blood of Jesus, into new beings, forged in the fires, mature, strong, free from sin, and pure in Christ.  This is the faith we need. Amen!
