“Who Am I, and Why Am I Here?”

Greg Huffer, Guest Speaker – James 1:1

This week, Greg Huffer leads Redemption Bible Church with an examination of James 1:1. James wrote to members of the twelve tribes which have scattered, fleeing the persecution going on at that time of Jewish converts to Christianity. James opens his letter with a definition of who he is: A servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. Greg instructs us to look inward and ask how would we define ourselves? Would we, similarly, define ourselves as a servant of God and Jesus Christ to everyone we come across? It is perhaps easy to declare on Facebook or among your friends that you love God and that God loves others? Being a servant of God is not something one should declare lightly, as it requires sacrifice. It is more polarizing to say that you love Jesus and that to enter into a relationship with God one must come to Him through Jesus Christ, His Son. It requires changes in your life to align it as completely as possible with the purposes of God and His Kingdom. There is a lost world out there. If we truly believe we are servants of God, we must recognize we have been called to minister and to introduce those arounds us to Jesus.
