Cary Cox, from James 1:22-25. Although hearing God’s word is of utmost importance, it matters how we hear! It is possible to hear without obeying, which is false religion and completely worthless. James calls us to hear and do God’s word. Biblical, saving faith always goes on to obedience/works. But what does this look like in the regular life of the church?
Cary Cox, from Romans 3:27-31. Salvation is all about the glory of God. He rescues his people for the sake of his great name! Justification comes to us by faith in Christ, not by our works, so that no one will be able to boast before God, and so that he alone will be glorified.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 10:19-25. The theology of Hebrews must be lived out in real life! We are called to draw near to God in worship, hold to the confession of our hope, and commit ourselves to faithfulness in the church.
Pastor Cary Cox, from Matthew 7:24-29. Jesus finishes his Sermon on the Mount by calling for a response: total obedience! The great storm of testing is coming; a Day of Judgment before God. Those who believe Christ and obey his teaching will stand through the storm. But those who see no danger and reject the teaching of Christ will face total destruction. Powerful words from Jesus!
