Digging Deeper James 1:1

Points to Ponder
James 1:1
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings.

Points to ponder:
James was the first book of the Bible that I read in its entirety after being saved. It is a short book, packed full of practical wisdom and written by James, the brother of Jesus. Can you imagine being the sibling of Jesus, the One that never sinned? You could never say, “Jesus did it.” Or point your finger and say, “He started it.” Yet, James grew up with Jesus and came to the place where he counted it an honor to be a servant of God and called his brother Lord. Amazing. It shows a spirit of humility and wisdom. I love this book and am looking forward to digging deep.

Think About This: Keep your eye simply on Him; let His death, His sufferings, His merits, His glories, His intercession, be fresh upon thy mind; when you wake in the morning look to Him; when thou lie down at night look to Him. Oh! let not your hopes or fears come between thee and Jesus; follow hard after Him, and He will never fail you.” – Charles Spurgeon

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the [e]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. – John 1:12-13
