The book of James is a definite eye opener when it comes to understanding the Christian life. Statements like, "faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead" have a way of smacking you right in the face, and the book is full of them. There is one, however, that I haven't been able to get out of my mind - verse 1:27. Please take some time to watch or listen to the video as I read the verse and begin to ask some questions about its meaning. My prayer as that we will all put our faith into action in our own unique way, and our communities will flourish as a result.
I want to explore God's love. Always. I believe I could write about it every week for a life time and never exhaust all there is to learn. Join our growing team as we write or talk about simple observations that will hopefully make you think about how you interact with the people around you. Perhaps if we all learn to love a little better we may just see the change we hope for in our lives.
