James: His Desire for the Churches

From Series: Basics 2019

The end of James often puzzles readers with its apparently piecemeal instruction. Guest Speaker Andy Gemmill addresses this problem by noting the common theme that ties it all together: repentance. At each step, James admonishes his readers against bad behavior by encouraging them to keep the Lord and the last days in view. Even James’ final directives about healing prayer and the restoration of spiritual wanderers speak to his timely concern—with surprising implications for the letter’s modern readers as well.
