Bible commentary

Discussion for James 1

  • A disciple
    I see that this whole chapter has to do with bearing up under fiery trials of temptations. To the Saints of Jesus they are the means for purifying us, and fashioning our character to be like Him. So if we are poor in this world, then we count it an honor and a promotion from God, to be counted worthy of these things. If someone is rich in this world, he will call it blessing for God to humble him.

    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 .

    Verses 2 to 4 shows that when we successfully cope with trials it makes our faith stronger and we develop positive qualities.
  • Evangelist Dahlia Daniels
    We have to example ourselves before we can become doer's of GOD you can't even serve GOD if you're not Obedience Submitting Yourselves unto him and doing what you know is right no matter what the circumstances maybe that's the way of CHRIST
  • Lewis Mills Jr
    To me this verse shows us how to be humble, and obedient, in honoring God with sincerity, doing what God's word says do, not seeking the attention of man. Obedience.
