James: A Plea for Authenticity

Don’t be fooled by its size. The letter of James may be small, but it’s strong. It refuses to let the reader hide behind the walls of theological theory or intellectual faith. True faith produces authenticity. “No authenticity…no faith”—that’s James’s conclusion on the matter. James’s letter may make us squirm, but it also makes us tear down our facades.

Why Me?

James 1:2-4

Although often met with resistance and resentment, trials have a purpose: they stretch you. It is through trials you learn endurance. And it is through patient endurance you bring glory to God.

Wisdom and Intellectualism

James 1:5

If you’re dealing with problems caused by your own foolishness, ask God what wise course of action you can take to turn your problems in the right direction. As you seek His wisdom for your decisions and responses to everyday life, the right attitudes and actions will become clearer.
