The entire book of James is a guide to Christian living. But it’s not solely intended for new believers. Mature Christians need to be reminded how to live because we can become complacent, discouraged and grumpy. Yes, it is true! We all fall short!
The world is in utter chaos. Governments cannot get along. Families cannot get along. Friends cannot get along. AND, God’s own people struggle to get along sometimes,
Brothers and sisters in Christ, we are supposed to be setting the example for the rest of the world to see. We are supposed to be reflecting the love and light of Jesus.
We must obey God. The Bible (God’s word) holds His instructions and promises for us.
While we cannot control how the rest of the world behaves, we can control our behavior and strive to be doers of the word. Let’s stop our petty debates and redirect our focus the things of God, serving Him and others.
God never promised us that His plan for our life would be easy to follow, but He did promise us abundant blessings along the way. Let’s pray to be stronger witnesses of God’s word and the good news.
Let’s be doers of His word.
