Are you a Christian who attends weekly worship? Each week do you grow in what you know, but nothing really changes? Is there more to the Christian life than personal ethics and Bible trivia? Do we have a responsibility for others? What happens when we ignore someone in need?
In this series, we explore the connection between the Christian faith and everyday life. Beginning with the importance of getting our anger under control, we learn that the Christian life involves treating others the way we would like to be treated. It means using our freedom in Christ to love others, especially Christian brothers and sisters in need.
James then moves from loving those in need to loving one another. What about favoritism in the church? While the world caters to the rich, attractive and upwardly-mobile, the church is to be a place where everyone treats others the way they would like to be treated. That is faith in action. Love across racial, age and economic lines is a sign the spirit of Christ is alive among the people.
Faith is more than knowledge, it is practical love for others. Has your Christian life become just more information? James speaks a breath of fresh air as he shows us what it means to put our faith into life.
