Through the Bible, God has clearly communicated to us important truths that he wants us to hear. Sometimes we overcomplicate what he has told us, rather than just seeing the straight talk he has given us to help guide our lives. The New Testament book of James is a very practical book, a hands-on, relevant, no-holds-barred letter that gives every follower of God some straightforward challenges and promises. At the same time, this book, written by one of Jesus’ brothers, is packed with profound truths. Each week in this series attacks a common dilemma or struggle that all believers of God face.
