Book of James
Bible study for this month is on the Book of James. James wrote his Epistle to challenge his readers to examine their faith to see if it was genuine saving faith. For Christians to survive suffering and grow in maturity, we must have genuine faith.
All of us face testing and trials which are unavoidable. We cannot face them effectively without Christ, our Lord and Saviour. He allows trials to come into the lives of His people. But he gives us the attitude of joy and ability to persevere if we have true faith and trust in Him.
Consider it pure joy,my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1-3
