    365 Bible Reading

    March 29 – James 1

    LOOK:  “When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.  Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”

    LISTEN:  James is a great book.  This book is about practical Christian living 101.  Remember that the believers that James is writing to are experiencing great persecution and on the verge of giving up.  James encourages them but also challenges them to live obedient lives.

    LEARN:  James teaches us this famous thought, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.  Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror  and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.  But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.”
