Pressure Points: The Pressure of Partiality
Good judgment isn't something we are born with. Bad judgment is. Human nature tell us to value and compare ourselves to all the wrong things. James reminds us to judge through the lenses of God. When we focus on God, things become clearer. When we judge and value the wrong things, no only do we hurt the people we are judging, but we also get hurt. 
 
MERCY TRIUMPHS OVER JUDGMENT!
 
Through God's mercy, we receive God's love and acceptance into His kingdom, no matter what we've done.

    The Joy of Serving
    Too often we only see what we want to see. We all want to live a fulfilling life. We often see what we want to see.  We're our own worst enemy. We want fulfillment, but we look for it in all the wrong places. Thankfully, Jesus loves us more than we can even comprehend. 
     
    Jesus gave his life because God knew all along that we were our own worst enemy. 
     
    Jesus say, if you want more out of life, give up all that other stuff...

    Armor of God-Shield of Faith
    Just like a soldier, we too walk through battles in this life. And while Jesus never promises to remove us from the fight, at least not on this side of heaven, he also never expects us to walk through the battles alone.
     
    Jesus is saying to you and to me, "Let me help you. Put your faith in me, and I will help you with that faith. Take my yoke upon you...let me be your shielf bearer...let g of whatever flimsy thing you have put your faith and trust into...and put your faith in me. Let me protect you from the flaming arrows of this world. And I will give you rest."
