Continuing In the Word

I wanted to continue talking about James for a little bit today. This is in NO way to be considered some kind of commentary on the book of James because I'm not that smart! I just wanted to share some of the thoughts I had written down as I read through the book.

James 2:9 Don't give people ratings from high to low; or from important to worthless

James 2:10 We can't possible keep the law to earn our way to heaven.

James 2:13 Judge without mercy and you will be shown no mercy.

James 2:14-16 Easy to say "bless your heart" -- Harder to get your hands dirty helping someone get out of a ditch!

James 2:26 Faith without works is dead.

And do you remember that "peace" that I have had since I did this study? Well, it brought to my mind an old song that I had not thought about in years. It's called
"He Whispers Sweet Peace to Me". (Written by William W. Ramsey) I will share a verse and the chorus with you hoping it might bless you as it has me!

"Sometime when misgivings darken the day,
And faith's light I can not see;
I ask my dear Lord to brighten the way,
He whispers sweet peace to me."

"He whispers sweet peace to me.
He whispers sweet peace to me.
When I am cast down in spirit and soul,
He whispers sweet peace to me."

So thankful for sweet peace and for the availability of God's Word and His Holy Spirit to put that peace in my heart.

Praying you have a peaceful day in the Lord today!

What great comfort I take in knowing that Jesus is the Prince of Peace.
