James 1:1-18 Consider what God may be doing in your suffering. Remember who you are in Jesus, and remember his purposes for you.

James 1:19-27 According to James, real faith involves more than believing. It involves two things, obeying, and loving!

James 2:1-13 It’s so easy to be infatuated by income and to lose sight of the glorious Lord Jesus we follow, but in our life together we’re not to show favouritism.

James 2:14-26 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?

James 3:1-17 We can never be complacent about our tongues, because we can never tame them. So we need to keep looking to the “wisdom from above”. We deal with our words by dealing with our hearts!

James 4:1-12 To become an ugly church, no action is required. To become a church that God blesses, let’s keep looking to Jesus. Let’s pour out our lives in service to others. Let’s not see each other as objects or obstacles, but as people to love. Let’s begin by repenting of our selfishness, by asking God to change us.
