James is a practical book about the Christian life that emphasizes the need for integrity. According to James, genuine faith will make a genuine difference in the way people live. When faith and actions align, we live with integrity, which is essential for following Jesus. Personal integrity enables us to be effective witnesses to a lost world; spiritual integrity enables us to be in a right relationship with God.
According to the teachings of James, only believers with integrity will persevere in persecution, resist temptation, respond obediently to God’s Word, overcome prejudice, produce good works, control their tongue, follow God’s wisdom, depend on God rather than wealth, wait patiently for the return of Christ, and make prayer, not personal effort, their spiritual resource.
James will confront us, challenge us, and call us to commitment. While those three C’s of James may be unsettling at first, the benefits will far outweigh the temporary discomfort. Join us as we study the life-changing truths from the epistle of James.
