Written to scattered believers facing a variety of troubles, the Epistle of James takes as its focus a universally relevant question: How are God’s people to live in God’s world? This side of heaven, trials and tribulations crowd into our lives, confronting us with failure and tears, doubts and disappointments, cries and groanings. In response, James offers us practical help, with an eye toward not becoming Christians so much as behaving as those who have been redeemed “by the word of truth.”
In volume four of this series, Alistair Begg highlights important principles that help Christians live in an unjust world. When we realize that everything in life is under God’s control and will ultimately be made right, we can live in a way that is contrary to human nature. Once His grace has captured our heart, we are given a new song to sing and the awareness of a loving heavenly Father to whom we can humbly bring all of our cares.
