We have been studying the book of James. We start with prayer and then we have our bible study and
then after the study we have snacks and play games. It’s a great time to get to
know each other better and to encourage one another in the faith.
We have not finished studying the book yet, but here are some verses that stuck out to me so far:
"This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be
quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger;
for the anger of man does not achieve
the righteousness of God." James 1:19-20
"But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely
hearers who delude themselves.
For if anyone is a hearer of the word
and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a
mirror; for once he has
looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of
person he was." James 1:22-24
"Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead,
being by itself.
But someone may well say, “You have faith and I
have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith
by my works.”
You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and
shudder." James 2:17-19
"Look at the ships also, though they are so great and
are driven by strong winds, are still directed by a very small rudder wherever
the inclination of the pilot desires.
So also the tongue is a small part of the
body, and yet it boasts of great things." James 3:4-5
I encourage you to start a Bible study with your friends or just a get together with friends and take turns reading God's word as a group of friends.
We have all had a lot of fun learning more about Yahweh and his ways, and I hope you will too!
Shalom and have a great day!
