Although every book of the Bible is important, I admit that I only count some of them as my favorites. For instance, I have a soft spot for the Gospel of Luke, and great appreciation for Paul’s letter to the Colossians. In regards to the general letters, James really stands out for me. It helped me recognize that our faith is often demonstrated by our actions.
Like my last series of recordings, it is also five chapters in length, but still a few minutes longer than 1 Thessalonians. For my reading, its duration is just over 14 minutes. Considering the book as a whole, one aspect that stands out for me is its incredible practicality. A large number of topics are discussed among its verses, including having a stable faith, rejecting hypocrisy, and treating others fairly. This is all explored in an extremely active way. James strongly teaches a faith that is manifested by service and good deeds.
This can be seen in both negative and positive ways in the book’s final chapter. Concepts such as keeping back wages from workers, grumbling, and swearing are all mentioned. As are suffering, cheerfulness, illness, and sins. These are shared in the fifth chapter of the book, which just so happens to be the sample chapter I picked for it.
My next update in this series will be for the book of 1 Peter.
