Jun 6, 2019   //   by Charlie Garrett   //   Daily Writing, Epistles, Epistles (written), James, James (Written), Writings  //  6 Comments

Thursday, 6 June 2019

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:6

James just said that those who lack wisdom (speaking of during times of trial) should “ask of God, who gives to all liberally, and without reproach.” He now makes a statement concerning such a request that is a necessary part of it.Read the rest

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5

There is a missed conjunction in the translation. It should read, “And if any,” or, “But if any.” This is a necessary conjunction because it ties the verse in thought to the previous verse.Read the rest

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:4

Remember the progression of thought –

1) consider trials as pure joy;
2) because these test faith;
3) faith develops patience.

In this verse, we see what brings us to a state of fullness and maturity.Read the rest

…knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. James 1:3

James began the general content of his letter with the previous verse. This verse finishes the thought. Together, they read –

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.”

James equates “various trials” with “the testing of your faith.” Understanding this he states it in such a way that we are to learn a lesson from it.Read the rest

James 1:2

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, James 1:2

James immediately further defines “the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad” that he just referred to by saying, “My brethren.” Though a Jew may consider all Jews in this category, he is certainly referring to Jewish believers in Christ here.Read the rest
