What is Your Life?
The letter of James is the oldest, most practical letter in the New Testament. James was an Apostle, pastor and half-brother of Jesus. His letter is filled with pastoral exhortations to “be doers of the word and not hearers only.” (1:22) But, his goal is not merely to put us in our place by telling us what to do. Rather, his aim is to help us be honest with ourselves, for our own good, by showing us that being fully human is not found in doing whatever we want, but in living out of a real, whole- hearted, vital relationship with God. Today, in a very practical and deeply relevant section (4:13-17), James helps us work out how we understand the world and ourselves within it.Audio | James 4:13-17
