For Today- "Living As A Spiritually Mature Person”

September 13, 2020 | Jim Hodge
James 1:1-4

Hebrews 6:1, "Let us go on to maturity." 

What maturity is not:

 James 1:2-4

 I. A spiritually mature person is positive when feeling pressure.

II. A spiritually mature person is sensitive to the people in their lives.

James 2:8; James 2:1-6; Matthew 25:42:44

III.  A spiritually mature person controls his speech in person and on social media. 

James 3:2, Ephesians 4:29, James 1:26

IV. A spiritually mature person makes peace not trouble.

James 4:1, James 4:3, Proverbs 13:10 

V. A spiritually mature person is patient especially when praying.

James 5:7,11

Faith Sheet:

  1. Read the book of James with someone. What do you appreciate about God after reading James? What is one truth God drove home to you?
  2. What motivates you to keep growing mature in your faith in Christ? (Read John 14:15, 15:7-8, Ephesians 4:13, 1 Corinthians 13:11 and 14:20). How do these truths sharpen your view of Christian maturity?
  3. Discuss the 5 areas of maturity from the book of James. Which one are you stronger in today? Which one do you want to focus on today?
  4. Pray our monthly Transformation Verse with someone. James 1:5 - “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
