Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,
says Yahweh of Hosts. Zechariah 4:6
Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in! Who is this King of Glory?
Yahweh of Hosts: He is the King of Glory. Psalm 24:9-10
Why does James exhort us to "count it all joy" when we experience trials?
James uses the word "temptation" in two senses: the positive sense of outward trials and the negative sense of inward temptations. As for those outward trials that prove our faith, what is the reward for those who patiently endure them?
In chapter one, James gives his readers three sound pieces of advice. The first is to be "swift to hear." What are the other two?
What analogy does James use to describe the man who is a hearer only of the Word and not a doer?
What are two ways in which a Christian shows that his religion is pure and undefiled?
The tongue is difficult to tame, and we all stumble by not controlling our words. Two examples are given by James of something relatively small that controls something vastly larger. What are they?
It is as inconsistent for cursing and blessing to come from the same mouth as it is for both fresh and bitter water to come from the same spring. James gives two other examples of such an inconsistency. Can you give them?
James describes the wisdom that is from above by several adjectives. For example, the wisdom from above is "pure." Give one other.
Because life is like a vapor--it appears for a short time and then vanishes away--James warns us against presumption in making detailed plans for the future without taking God into account. Rather than say, "Tomorrow I will do such and such," what should we say?
"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." Elijah is given as an example. What did he do?
