In spite of our efforts to stave off the aging process, the reality is we’re in a fight against the clock. James teaches that surrendering our future to God frees us up to enjoy the journey. Listen as our study in James continues on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!

At the time of the Redeemer's ascension, the Holy Spirit became the head of the present era, and His power was gloriously displayed in and after Pentecost. He remains at this hour the present Immanuel--God ...
