    We live in hope because of Jesus Christ and the third chapter of 1 Peter comes to a close with Peter focusing in specifically on the hope we find in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The empty tomb is the proof that your salvation has been obtained, if you have trusted Christ. Now let's open our Bibles to 1 Peter 3 verses 18 through 22 as our Building on the Basics series continues.

    Have you ever been in a situation where someone said something or did something unkind toward you? Do you remember how you reacted in that situation? Did you react based on your hurt or your anger? Or, did you react in a spiritual way? Which way do you think pleases God? As we look deeper into 1 Peter chapter 3, were going to find Peter showing followers of Jesus how we are to interact with all people in general, even those who mistreat us. As Pastor Clay explains, when we allow godly characteristics to be built into us by the Holy Spirit, then what comes out of us, our conduct, is not based on our flesh, but on what God desires to see in us.

    We live in a politically correct culture it seems that we all have to be careful of what we say in order to not offend anyone. One of the most politically incorrect statements we could possibly make these days is to say something like A wife should submit to her husband. In the culture in which we live, the idea of a wifes submission to her husband is about as popular as barbecue food truck at a vegan convention. But the truth is, God never cared much about popularity or political correctness. God cares about men and women experiencing the most out of life as possible, and that requires following Gods direction and not the worlds. So no matter what your thoughts are on a wife submitting to her husband, we hope youll open Gods word with us to first Peter chapter 3 as Pastor Clay walks us through Gods plan for a wife.

For those of us who have given our lives to Christ however, Peter reminds us of how special we are in the eyes of God and how that makes all the difference in the world when it comes to living our lives.

    Hope, how do you live in it when everything around you seems hopeless? Is it even possible? Well as Pastor Clay explained in last weeks message, there is no hope to be found in this world but that doesnt mean there isnt hope for this world. Last week in 1 Peter chapter 1, we saw three places where we could find hope and this week, we'll see three more place where hope can be found. Maybe youre in desperate need of some hope today? We pray this message gives us all a reminder of where real, lasting hope is found.

    What is prayer? And why is it so important for followers of Jesus to practice the discipline of prayer? Throughout our study in James, weve looked at the basic of faith. James has shown us again and again that faith is something that has to be acted on, IF it is real faith. Todays discussion on prayer is no different. In fact, prayer is one of the most practical ways that we can act on our faith. Whether you have a strong prayer life or like many people, you struggle to understand the importance of prayer, were sure that todays message from Pastor Clay will help all of us understand more about acting on our faith through the resource of prayer.

    Pastor Clay is walking us through the General Epistles of the New Testament in our series entitled, ''Building On The Basics.'' The book of James emphasizes the subject of faith and the need for us to act on our faith. In todays message from James chapter 5, Pastor Clay is going to show us how James emphasizes the fact that a payday is coming, and what that will mean for both those who have a worldly focus and those who have a godly focus. As you might imagine, payday will be quite different for those two groups of people.

    Have you ever wanted to tell someone to just mind their own business? Well, God has the same thing to say to us.

Being judgmental is not something that followers of Jesus should display. As James is going to explain theres really only one judge and Pastor Clay is going to explain what that passage means for us and what it doesnt mean.

    This week, Pastor Clay continues with last week's message in our ''Building On The Basics'' series. We're in James chapter 4, where James points out some specific choices that we, as followers of Jesus, need to make a continual choice to stay in submission to God, and the decision to resist and defeat the devil daily. This week, James encourages us to pursue God and allow Him to cleanse us from our sins. We're picking up in James chapter 4 with verse 8. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Now here's Pastor Clay.

    Today were moving in to chapter 4 of the book of James in our series ''Building On The Basics.'' James doesnt have time to beat around the bush. He is direct and confrontational on the issue of faith and what is real and what is fake. James calls it like he sees it and what he sees is people who were, as James puts it, committing spiritual adultery. Pastor Clay is going to walk us through this powerful passage today, and give us some practical steps to take once we recognize that things are not good.

    Have you ever noticed how children can have mannerisms just like their parents? Speech, gestures, even the way they walk can look just like Mom or Dad. God has expectations that His children will take on His mannerisms and today , Pastor Clay is taking us to the second half of James chapter 3 where were going to find the author emphasizing what has clearly been the theme of his entire letter, that our faith must prove itself through actions or its not really faith at all.

    Have you ever heard the old saying: ''to stick your foot in your mouth?'' It means that someone said something inappropriate and probably embarrassing. Weve probably all been guilty of that in the past and probably will be in the future. But as were going to hear today, God has some expectations for His children and what comes out of their mouths. Today in our series, ''Building On The Basics,'' were in James chapter 3 this week in our series, ''Building On The Basics,'' and the subject of the tongue takes center stage. Our speech says a lot about what we believe and as Pastor Clay will explain in todays message, we need to have a reality check about what our language is saying about what we believe.

    Have you ever heard the phrase All bark, but no bite. In culture it came to refer to a person that talked a big game, but didnt necessarily deliver on the big talk. So, can the same thing be said about some people the say they are followers of Jesus? In James chapter 2 we find the author addressing the problem of people that say they have faith, but have no evidence of that faith in their life. The kind of faith God wants us to have is a faith that produces a changed life, or as James puts it, a faith the produces works. Pastor Clay is going to explain how this passage in James letter has been misused theologically to promote a works salvation. And, hes going to show us what saving faith actually is.

    We are in James chapter 2 this week as we continue with our series, ''Building on the Basics.'' The book of James is helping us to build the basic of faith into our lives. As Pastor Clay is going to explain, one of the ways we live out our faith is in the way we treat other people. Sadly, throughout history there have been those who have gained prominence and position in the church because they had money. As were going to hear today, there is no place for partiality in the body of Christ.

    Have you noticed that hardly anybody is to blame for anything anymore? It seems that if someone messes up they blame their parents, or their circumstances, or their employer, or even God. But the Bible has something very different to say about our sin. Today we continue our series ''Building On The Basics,'' and as we move into the second half of James chapter 1, we see James beginning to discuss the responsibility for our sin. It seems that some people had the idea that through their circumstances, God was tempting them to sin. As well hear, James sets that record straight in a hurry, and in the process shows us the true origin of our sin.
