Book of James

“ …faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.”

So it takes more than FAITH to be committed to change in your life. Let me tell you, I know that for sure, my journey was based on FAITH but others of myself had to change to make me the persona I am today.

The book of James provides that need to change I choice three that stands out:

  • Stop looking down on others
  • Anyone can falter, don’t judge
  • Everyone is on a different journey- don’t criticize choices

We must learn to be committed to our FAITH and show ourselves in accordance with our FAITH and not be a sometimer. We need to look at ourselves in the mirror not the outer and see if we are living our lives to what we proclaim.

Yes we are all a work in progress but the question would be when does the work truly begin and what steps must we begin to follow our journey.

I will be looking at the five chapters of James in upcoming biblejournaling and the concepts they teach for us to follow our FAITH.
