The Letter of James

As the brother of Jesus, imagine the stories he could tell!  But instead of stories, he gave the Church a brief collection of essential teachings about what wholehearted devotion to Jesus looks like.  He calls his readers to a radical faith... rejoicing in testing, not playing favourites, talking the talk without the accompanying walk, controlling the tongue, having right motives, waiting patiently for the Lord's return and taking our concerns to God in prayer.  He calls professing believers to examine their faith to make sure it is genuine & real.  How are you doing?
