The book of James is a very practical guide for living the Christian life. If you really believe the basic message of Jesus, then what kind of life will you live? What will your life look like practically? These are the questions that James helps us answer.
James not only helps us understand things about our own lives, but it also teaches us about the kind of community that the gospel fosters. Our passage today shows us 1) the importance of community between believing Christians, 2) what the main barriers are to that community, and 3) how to break through those barriers.
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 10, 2010. Series “The Gospel in Community: The Book of James”. Scripture: James 4:1-12.
