   James Wrap Up
   James 1:26-27; 2:20-25
Sunday School,  September 18, 2016
This is the last session in the Epistle of James, a very practical study for living the Christian life. FAITH and SUFFERING are two themes that stand out in the text. A lot of people will claim to have faith but not a faith that works. James wrote, "If faith hath not works, it is dead." When Jesus preached the Gospel, it resulted in disciples, not couch potatoes. Genuine faith will be manifested in service. The suffering was the result of persecution which caused many believers to scatter to other countries. Being a child of God is not a guarantee of freedom from suffering. Those that endured were counted as happy in as much as their suffering caused them both to identify with Christ and to advance in their likeness to Christ (James 2:11).

   Perfect Patience
   James 5:7-12
Sunday School,  May 29, 2016
Patience involves suffering long without complaint or groaning. It also is used for endurance or waiting on God without complaining. Patience is made difficult by the "natural man's" focus on me, my desires, my needs. How does God use every nuisance in our lives for something good?

   James Three Summary
   James 3
Sunday School,  April 10, 2016
James covers a wide variety of topics related to discipleship and Christian growth. It would appear that some of the saints were having problems with their tongues (James 1:26; 2:12; 3:1-12; 4:1, 11-12). It is most interesting that James places the subjects of the tongue and wisdom together. The tongue seems to get a lot of people into trouble while wisdom could keep the trouble from occurring and resolve any problems caused by it. Some of the problems of the tongue include slander, gossip, flattery, exaggeration, insinuation and even silence. Some think tongue problems are not that serious but God's Word is clear that whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all (James 2:10).

   The Believer's Responsibility to the Word of God
   James 1:19-22
Sunday School,  February 28, 2016
James 1:22 exhorts us to be "doers of the Word, and not hearers only." The pastor is required in Scripture to feed the sheep, over which the Holy Ghost has made him overseer of the local church (Acts 20:28). This involves 1) intense study of the Word of God, 2) understanding the original language and culture in which it was spoken, 3) sound hermeneutics which is the principle and method of interpreting the text of God's Word (2 Timothy 2:15) and 4) the exposition, which is the process of carefully translating the Word into food for the hearers. The believer's responsibility begins with being swift to hear, having an intense hunger for the Word which assists him in properly receiving it (James 1:19).

   Introduction to James
   James 1:1
Sunday School,  November 15, 2015
Francis of Assisi and an apprentice went to a certain village to preach. They visited with many people, encouraging them in the faith and sharing Christ with others. Francis said that it was time to return home and the apprentice said, "But we have not yet preached." Francis said: "We did preach as the people watched, listened and responded to us. Every word we have spoken and every deed was a sermon." This illustration sums up the emphasis in the Epistle of James, which is practical and not doctrinal. The epistle teaches us that a living faith is evidenced by righteous living. It is an important book for us to study as the believer's belief is matched by his behavior. This will be the emphasis of our study together in James.
