Living in the 21st century as a Christian is hard. So was it for the Jewish believers some 2000 years ago. That’s why James, the half brother of Jesus, wrote a letter to encourage the believers then to press on in their trials, as well as provide practical wisdom for their everyday living. The beautiful thing about it is this: the very same lessons still apply today.

Here is a 30-day study on the book of James covering themes like true religion, true faith and true wisdom. Written by your peers from all over the world, we pray and hope that their devotions would  inspire you to grow in spiritual maturity and live your life wholly for Jesus.

Praise the Lord my dear brothers and sisters!  I am learning many new things through you all! Today’s message is really inspiring and I am applying these truths in my life  this very second.

Sure enough, wisdom is the last think I ask of when facing a trial, simply because I never want to be in a trying situation, so I keep looking for a way out. Thanks YMI, this is so encouraging.
