James 1: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God—Resist temptation—Be doers of the word—James explains how to recognize pure religion. James 2: God has chosen the poor of this world who are rich in faith—Salvation is gained by keeping the whole law—Faith without works is dead. James 3: By governing the tongue, we gain perfection—Heavenly wisdom is pure, peaceable, and full of mercy. James 4: Wars are born of lusts—The friends of the world are the enemies of God—Sin is failure to walk in the light we have received. James 5: Misery awaits the wanton rich—Await the Lord’s coming with patience—The elders are to anoint and heal the sick.
