Turning Toward Integrity
James, the elder of the Jerusalem church, wrote his epistle to the scattered tribes of Israel, new Christians who had fled persecution. James knew that there would be no "living happily ever after" for those dispersed believers, and he wanted them to see life from God's perspective.
The Epistle of James is for all of us who need God's supernatural strength to meet the challenges of our lives. It is for us who want God's wisdom and who intend to walk the rough road to Christian maturity. For James, the proof of profession was in the living. It still is.
