James 2:14 – What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? In this study, we will examine the definition of faith as taught by James and think about justification.
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. In this study let us meditate on this simple instruction, which forms a simple cheat-sheet in life.
James 2:10 – For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. In this study, we will examine this rather strong declaration by James that by stumbling at just one point renders one’s good work at keeping the whole law meaningless, and decipher his gentle reminder behind these seemingly harsh words.

James 1:25 – 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. In this study we will examine this verse in its entirety and list out the three steps for us to check ourselves against the word.
James 4:7 – Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. In this study we will examine the direct relationship between submitting to God and resisting the devil, and the qualities that we need to have in order to do so.
James 5:16 – Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. In this study, we will examine what is prayer and what is the prayer of a righteous man.
Amos 9:11 – In that day I will restore David’s fallen tent. I will repair its broken places, restore its ruins, and build it as it used to be. In this verse we will examine this prophecy and how it relates to the early church, and how it can apply to us today.
James 1:22 – Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. In this study we will examine James’ concept a true Christian, and how we cannot be satisfied with merely listening, but we must also apply what we know in good works.
James 1:19 – My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. This verse highlights an important lesson on humility and the importance of knowing when to speak and when to react.
James 4:15 – Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” In this study, we will look into James’ reminder to keep God’s will in our mind as we make plans for the future, as God is the only One who decides if we will live to see tomorrow.
