If You Just Believe

"Double Portion" Series

August 20th, 2017 - 11th Sunday after Pentecost

Pastor Paul is preaching.

James 1:1-8

Our ability to claim a double portion of God’s Spirit in our lives requires more than just solidifying the nature of our request, it requires a heart that expects to obtain it. 

Of course an expectant and faithful heart is not gifted us without effort on our parts.  The Apostle James call us to just “believe and not doubt” and we’ll receive the greatest of gifts from above.  If only it were as easy as he and Walt Disney make it sound.  But that must not prevent us from striving towards it.  Besides, there’s no less joy in the journey than in the destination.
