Who Is the Disciple James?

Series: Everyday Disciples

Pete Briscoe

We all have things we’re passionate about. While we’d like to say that our passions are for noble and selfless things, like helping the poor or feeding the hungry, most likely our passions take shape while we’re stuck sitting in traffic or watching a bad call from the ref in a sporting event or feeling personally affronted by what someone says. Jesus’ disciple James was no exception. He was a man full of misplaced, dangerous passion. But allowing his passion to be led by the Holy Spirit changed James into a man whose passion was dangerous—in a good way! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares with us some stories from James’ life and guides us in dealing with our passion and the passionate people around us.

Scripture: Luke 9:51
