This Week in the Word: James 5

Our Psalm and sermon text this week dovetail nicely. Both reflect the same idea--that life often feels unfair, slanted towards 'the other guy'--that every challenge is a constant, reverberating reminder that the grass is greener on any side but mine. That's where James (and the Psalmist) both introduce a flash of divine insight. That God orders the broken creation around us, and quietly, but providentially directs our lives toward His will. And His will is always the safest direction to venture in, since God determines the final destiny of all--rich and celebrated, as well as poor, saddened and downtrodden.

Donate Online

If you wish to donate to the ministry at Tinkers Creek, click the button below. This is a secure transaction and will be processed the same way we receive donations in person.  As always, giving at Tinkers Creek is received anonymously so that it remains a matter between you and God.  We use an outside bookeeper to record giving so that no one inside the church knows what is given.

Loving God, Loving Others

The following document has a listing of verses that summarize what the Bible has to say about our call to love God and others. There are 183 references to love here. This does not even take into account all the references to God’s love for us (except in some cases where his love and our love are included the same verse). If all the verses about God’s love toward us were included, the list would be at least twice as long. This is just the other half of the equation: our response to God’s love.
