Living Right Through Trials! James 1:1-4
Scripture References: James 1:1-4
From Series: "James – Living Right in a Wrong World!"
The book of James is one of the most practical books in the Bible. The primary theme of James is the relationship between faith and works – between what we believe and what we do. Our goals for this series are to grow in our knowledge, understanding, and experience of God. We also want to cooperate with the Holy Spirit as He works to conform us to the image of Christ. And finally, as this world goes the wrong way, we want to learn how to live the right life Jesus died to give us. Welcome to our verse-by-verse journey through the book of James. One of the things the Bible makes clear is that God’s people should not live like the people who do not believe in God. The Bible was given to us by God for the purpose of knowing Him and the right way to live. To live in a way that glorifies God, blesses others, and grows faith. To live any other way is to live the wrong way. Most people in the world around us have chosen to reject God and His Word. We are surrounded by people who have chosen to live the wrong way. It is our hope that we can all learn how to live right in this wrong way world.
