Division persists along political, racial, and socioeconomic lines (cf. James 2:1-13). The way we speak about others often reinforces these divisions (cf. 3:1-12). But because the gospel eradicates selfish ambition, God’s people can pursue peace. Pastor Randy Buchman preaches on James 2:1-13; 3:1-18.
After the resurrection, the gospel spread from Hebraic Jews to Hellenistic Jews, to god-fearers, to proselytes, and ultimately to Gentiles. God has broken down the barriers that divide to make one new body in Jesus Christ: the church. Pastor Randy Buchman preaches on Acts11:19-21, Acts 16:9-10, and Ephesians 2:11-22.
