RICH IN TRUST Street Level Faith James 5:1-8

 

***Only those who are rich in trust are truly rich

*** An Image of Trust (A Grandmother’s Love) The Link between Patience and Trust – James 5:7a - James’ primary audience is the persecuted, scattered, poor church - The Iceberg Image: Trust is always beneath the surface of true patience - How do we become people who trust?

***Only those who are rich in trust are truly rich

*** Misplaced Trust – James 5:1-3a - This is important enough to give a slap across the face to bring us to our senses. - Wealth will never truly give you security - We reach for wealth because we long for control The Curse of Wealth (Winning the Lotto) From Misplaced Trust to Major Malfunctions – James 5:3b-6 - Trusting wealth makes us unwise, unjust and unsafe - We miss opportunities to invest our energy into what really matters

***Only those who are rich in trust are truly rich

 

*** Who We’re Becoming (God cares about who we’re becoming) Rich in Trust – James 5:7-8 - Being patient requires you to believe that God is ultimately in control - Trusting God includes hard work. Trust and effort are not enemies. - Trusting God makes us truly rich. How to grow in trust - Try asking for help (prayer) - If you want to trust God, you have to know God (scripture) - Surround yourself with people who trust God (community)

***Only those who are rich in trust are truly rich***
