Sunday Sermon: Living Beautifully (James 3:13-18)

Redeemer Presbyterian Church - Traverse City, MI

Nov 12 2023 • 35 mins

This Lord’s Day, James will return us to the broader theme of wisdom. He presents us with two “ways”. The way of wisdom from below, and the way of wisdom from above. The way of wisdom from below is the earthly wisdom of the Serpent in the garden of Eden. It is the wisdom that seeks immediate pleasure at every expense. As we shall see, it results in the living of an ugly life. However, the wisdom that is from above matches the character of the Lord Jesus Christ. This wisdom, though not prioritizing our instant pleasure, leads to a harvest of righteousness in a beautifully lived life.
