Patience, Patience, Patience, Patience
We’ll flip around a bit this morning, but in our text we will find a few incentives for patience, beginning in verse 7, 9-10 with our common bond in Christ, continuing verses 7, 10, and 11 with our three examples to follow, and concluding in verses 7 through 9 with our Lord’s return.
The Good Samaritan
As we study one of Jesus’ most well-known parables, we’ll see the scene (25-30), the characters (31-35), and the command (36-37). Parables are stories with truth thrown alongside, and we’ll find a powerful truth for us to consider.

Warning to the Rich
As we study our text, we’ll find four indictments on the ungodly rich for us to examine ourselves to make sure we’re not guilty; hoarding in verse 2-3, fraud in verse 4, self-indulgence in verse 5, and murder in verse 6.
If The Lord Wills!
As we study our text we will find what not to say in verses 13-14 and what to say in verses 15-17.
Who Do You Think You Are!
As we study our text we will find the command against speaking down on others in the first part of verse 11 is to attempt to place yourself above the law in the second part of 11 and above God in verse 12.
Grace for the Humble
As we study our text we will find a jealous but gracious God in verses 5 and the first part of verse 7, a sinful but penitent people in the second part of first 7 through 9, and the gravity of grace in verse 10.
A Ness of a Problem!
As we study our text, we will find quarrelsomeness in verses 1 and 2a, prayerlessness in verses 2b through 3, and worldliness in verse 4.

Wisdom from Above
As we study our text, we’ll find James offer us a choice between fake wisdom in verses 13 through 16, real wisdom in verses 17 and 18, and then have a brief flashback to James 1:5.

Taming The Tongue, Part II
As we study this text, we’ll find two contradictions in verses 9 and 10, and come to the conclusion in verses 11 and 12.
Taming The Tongue, Part I
As we study our text we find the tongue is small but powerful in verses 3 through the first part of 5, small but destructive in the rest of verse 5 and verse 6, and that our tongues are small but uncontrollable in verses 7 and 8.
As we consider these preliminary words on bridling the tongue, we find three important things; a word of caution in verse 1, a dose of reality in the first part of verse 2, and a glimmer of hope in the second half of verse 2.
Real Faith, Part III
As we study this text, we’ll come to a question in verse 20, the examples of a father and a prostitute from verses 21 through 25, and come to the conclusion of this whole section in verse 26.
Real Faith, Part II
As we study our text, we will find, simply enough, a silly objection in verse 18 and a searching comparison in verse 19.
Real Faith, Part I
In our text we ask two rhetorical questions in verse 14, consider one hypothetical situation in verses 15 and 16, and a damning conclusion in verse 17.
One Under Liberty!
As we study our text, we will be reminded of three things: Favoritism violates God’s Law in verses 8 through 11, Favoritism will be judged by God in verse 12, because Favoritism reveals an unmerciful spirit in verse 13.
As we study our text, we’ll find the command to not show partiality is given by the examples in verses 1 through 4, the enigma in verses 5 through 7, and the exhortation in verse 8, the latter of which will tie this message with the next sermon.
As we study our text, we will find the Proof of our salvation in verse 3, the Perseverance of our salvation in verse 4, and the Power of our salvation in verse 5.
1 Peter 1:3-5
Living The One Another Life
A standalone sermon by Brother Richard Cobler.
As we study our text, we’re find the marks of true religion as a taming of the tongue in verse 26, a caring for the needy in the first half of verse 27, and a call to stay unstained from the world in the second half of verse 27.
Do The Word
As we study our text, we’ll find the choice between being a glancer of the Word in verses 22 through 24 or a gazer into God’s Word in verse 25. Will you be a glancer, or a gazer?
Hear The Word
As we study our text we will be urged by James to HEAR the Word eagerly in verses 19 and 20, REPENT from sin faithfully in verse 20 and the first half of verse 21, and RECEIVE the Word meekly in the second half of verse 21
Gifted From Above
As we study our text this morning, we’ll consider God’s goodness through His gifts in the first part of verse 17 and the giver of them in the second part, along with the greatest gift of all in verse 18.
Tempted From Within
As we study our text, we’ll find temptations have a reason, verses 13 and 14, and our temptations have at least two results, verses 15 and 16.
The Crown of Life
As we study this text, we will ask who will be blessed, when will they be blessed, and what will be the blessing, three questions James answers so beautifully, filling those who hear them with hope to endure each and every storm we face.
A Counter-Cultural Paradox
As we study this text, we will find the Rich Poor in verses 9, the Poor Rich in verses 10 and 11, and then I’ll share a word for everyone for the counter-cultural call this is for all of us as we seek to remain one in Christ.
Wisdom For The Storm
As we study our text we will find storms require wisdom in the first part of verse 5, wisdom requires prayer in the second part of verse 5, and prayer requires faith in verses 6 through 8.
Joy In The Storm
As we mine the depths of James 1:2-4, we find the irrational call in verse 2, followed by that rational reason behind it in verse 3 and 4, and then we’ll make few distinctions about trials in light of both.
