James 1:22-25. There are two types of Bible readers in the world: 1. That that only read the Bible 2. Those who read and do the Bible. James calls us to put our faith into practice by actually living what we read and not being a hypocritical observer of the Word.
James 1:19-21. Do you struggle with anger? Sometimes we can write off anger as just part of our personality, but James teaches us that anger is much more than a character fault, rather it is abominable to God and must be put away from us just as any other sin.
While James 1:14-15 show us that man's desire is to sin continuously, our text today shows us just how "other" God is because He desires salvation for all sinners. James 1:16-18
Who is responsible for all the pain and suffering in the world and in our lives? It's easy to blame God, but is He responsible? If not, who is to blame? James 1:13-15
What are you living for? As we look to James 1:9-12 we must examine our priorities and ask whether our priorities align with what God desires.
We examine James 1:5-8 and look at the application of wisdom in the context of affliction.
We examine James 1:1-4 and consider the joy that is found only through suffering.
