Heavenly Father, thank you for the opportunity to once again study your word with this group. Lord, we continue to desire to have our hearts changed by what we learn when we study together, please pour your Spirit over us tonight and help us understand how to shape our thinking with what we learn in the Letter of James. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
- We learned in chapters 1 and 2 three key points: God’s judicial acquittal of us is through faith alone, living faith will express itself in obedience to God, and a “dead faith” does not save.
Read James 3:1-2 and answer questions 1-4 on page 8 of the workbook.
Heavenly Father, I praise You for the truth of Your Word, and thank You for those that You put in my path, to teach me the glorious gospel of Christ. I pray that I may grow in grace, walk in spirit and truth, mature in the faith, and be ready and willing to tell others the hope that I have in You. Help me to be faithful in all I say and do, and give me opportunities to tell others about Jesus, and the joy of our salvation. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Next week, we will be looking at James 3:3-12 and answering questions 5-8 on page 8 of the workbook. Have a wonderful week, ladies!
