James 1:1 - 27

Study 1 – James 1:1-18

  1. Trials, believe it or not, are for our benefit. We should view them as training that will make us worthy of crossing the finish line and receiving a crown of glory! When the going gets tough and you need wisdom for the journey you only need ask it from the Lord and believe without a doubt that He will make it available.

  2. The author of temptation is Satan. Flirting with it will only lead to disaster. Temptation must be dismissed immediately. For every temptation that comes along the way we need to remember that God has something even better that the temptation is attempting to counterfeit. If we focus on the real blessing and ask help from the Lord then we can be assured that He will provide a way of escape.

  3. God desires nothing more than to be glorified and He loves to receive glory through blessing those that serve Him and walk in obedience to His Word.

Study 2 – James 1:19-27

  1. Our inability to keep our mouths shut and a lid on our anger and frustration goes a long way toward hindering what God wants to do in our presence.

  2. One of the purposes of the Word of God is to reveal those things in us that must be cast aside. We must deal with what His Word reveals. Doing so is the key to divine blessing.
