STUDIES IN THE BOOK OF JAMES
If you believe community is a vital part of healthy church life, Harvest Groups is for you!
Our new study series with Pastor Greg is “WALK THIS WAY: A Study in the Book of James.”
We are about to jump into a 10-week study in the Book of James. This book has often been referred to as the “Proverbs of the New Testament.” Like Proverbs, James gives practical little pearls of wisdom that we can apply in our lives.
James deals with trials and temptations and shows us how to make them work for us rather than against us. He also addresses how we can know the will of God, the proper and improper use of our words, our relationships with other believers, and our relationship and attitude toward this world in which we live.
James clarifies the meaning of genuine faith and connects it to practical works. He insists on a concrete, seven days a week, working faith that produces positive results. Without good works, James says, faith is useless (James 2:17, 20). Genuine faith takes hold of the promises of God and does something with them; it is active, not passive.
James uses close-up personal confrontation, challenge, and a call to commitment. It is my prayer for you that you allow these words to penetrate your heart, so you can apply the principles of this book to your life—it will be impossible for you to remain unchanged if you do.
