Reading through James Chapter Two can sometimes be difficult. Learning to understand the principles found in James Chapter Two can often feel overwhelming. We might often question what is the writer trying to say when he says, “mercy triumphs over judgement.” Or when he writes, “Show me your faith without works, and I by my works will show you my faith.”
However, I really can’t imagine a more honest look into the heart of what Jesus was wanting from His followers when He said “to love your neighbor as yourself” than when I read James Chapter Two.
The book of James is not always that encouraging. However, it is honest and truthful. When you read James Chapter Two you are reading the truth shared in love. It’s difficult to look at our lives filled with favoritism and truly know that we are walking out the Christian life like we should. The hardest part about life and being a follower of Christ is being able to do relationships well. We can’t do those things when our words and and actions do not line up in this life.
Lessons Learned in James Chapter Two
In the book of James we learn two lessons about life and they are:
- To not get caught up in the culture of Christianity and showing favoritism.
- When we are filled with the Holy Spirit we will always pour out what we have received. This is what a lot of people call the “overflow.” When we do this we are furthering God’s Kingdom.
