Facing Life's Problems

March 15, 2020 Speaker: Brandon Phillips

Topic: God's Wisdom, Christian Living, Affliction Passage: James 1:1–1:12

Sermon Outline

In James 1, James gives three reminders of why we must trust God in our present circumstances. He reminds us that: 

  1. Our Trials have Purpose (James 1:2-4)
  2. God’s Wisdom is Paramount (James 1:5-8)
  3. Our Circumstances are Passing (James 1:9-12)


"We are but men, frail, feeble, and apt to faint" ~ Charles Spurgeon

"Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom." ~ Charles Spurgeon
