The Book of James in a Nutshell

  • Rejoice that God is with you throughout the trials which will come in this life. Persevere in suffering, knowing the hope we have in Christ.
  • Be satisfied with your life and be humble, whether you are wealthy or poor. Don't take pleasure in riches or gain them by oppressing others.
  • Don't show favouritism  to the rich at the expense of the poor.
  • Live a life free of corruption.
  • Be slow to get angry.
  • Keep a tight rein on your tongue. Don't grumble or swear. Don't slander anyone. Don't boast about the things you are planning.
  • Obey the word of God. Do what it says. 
  • Accompany your faith with good works that demonstrate your faith. Minister to others through deeds as well as words.
  • Draw near to God in prayer and praise. Be honest about your own failures and shortcomings..
  • Intercede for those who are sick 
  • Assist those who are struggling in their faith and falling away. Help them to return to a strong relationship with God.
