 9:30-11:00

The Letter of James, although ostensibly in the form of a general letter, has more the character of a sermon or treatise. In its brief span of 108 verses it repeatedly urges Christians to conduct their lives according to that wisdom that is from above, from the God who is the giver of “every perfect gift,” rather than according to earthly wisdom, which leads to death. Empowered by God’s “implanted word,” Christians are called to be not merely “hearers” but “doers” who show forth their faith in specific and practical acts of love and mercy.  Mercy is a term used to describe leniency or compassion. God’s mercy is frequently referred to or invoked in both the Old and New Testaments.
