    I like how the book of James contains to every day of our life. Not just yesterday.

    V27, Stephen visited and fed the Jewish fatherless and widows that were neglected by the Jews. Pure in heart, with kindness and charity, Stephen was not only helping Christians but also those in need under the dominance of other religions. Jewish religion and Christianity are not the same religion.

    Verse 13: God doesn't tempt man is very clear, test yes, but tempt no. Neither does the devil make man do sin, our own desires of the flesh are what lead a person down the road to destruction, verse 14. Faith is more than saying, I believe so I am saved. It takes a deep conviction that is strong enough to change conduct befitting God and saying no to temptation of our own bodies to sin, obedience

    James 1 Verse 14
    But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

    Example: King David was enticed!!
    11 Samuel Chap 2Verse 2
    And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.

    James 1:21"receive with meekness the engrafted word which is able to save your souls. The "engrafted word", is all 66 books of Holy Writ. The"engrafted word" is not what some teach that there are only certain parts that pertain to salvation. I think they call it "fundamentals, and essentials doctrine" Be not deceived.

    U right temptation is not sin .sin come in when we desire a thing or person then we act on it .Remember when Sadan tried to Temp Jesus he did not do what Sadan wanted him to do but he did speak a word on him.letting us no we must reburk Temptation .temptations will come we must be able to ID the source And remember Jesus Dont Temp anyone so the source will be Flesh or Sadan Praise the Lord .
