James: Live What You Believe

The Letter by James offers us an important view of the Christian faith. While he barely mentions Jesus at all, James goes straight to practical issues, namely how to live in light of the gospel. James assumes his readers know and believe the gospel; they just aren’t applying it to how they live. In this, he calls Christians to a tested, mature faith; faith that is so genuine that it is evident to the world. James exhorts us to live what we believe.
