Pastor Nate Brosher

Apr 17, 2024

James 5:13-15 NLT

13 Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. 14 Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.


3 Important Commands from James.

1. Hardships - Pray

2. Happy – Praise

3. Sick – Call for the Elders.


James 5:16 NLT

16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.



Exomologeō – Acknowledge openly and joyfully.


  • Secrets - something that is kept or meant to be kept unknown or unseen by others.


Galatians 5:22-23 NLT

22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law (injunction or restriction) against these things!


  • The Fruit of the Spirit:  Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control.


Galatians 5:24-25 NLT

24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. 25 Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit's leading in every part of our lives.


  • The Fruit of the Flesh: Hate/Envy, Sadness/Bitterness, Hostility/Turmoil/Fear, Impatience, Hateful/Cruel, Wickedness, Disloyal, Insensitive, Self-Indulged.


James 5:17-20 NLT

17 Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! 18 Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops. 19 My dear brothers and sisters, if someone among you wanders away from the truth and is brought back, 20 you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back will save that person from death and bring about the forgiveness of many sins.


  • Elijah was a Human.


Hebrews 11:1-2 NLT

1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. 2 Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation.
