The intensely practical Epistle of James has been referred to by some as “The Proverbs of the New Testament.” It is like a running commentary on the teachings of Jesus Christ, especially the Sermon on the Mount. James tells us about the sources and the sequences of salvation. James addresses suffering and tells you to “count it all joy” when you experience these temptations. We are to welcome our trials as friends because they can produce mature, spiritual character.
