The trouble with temptation

1 comment

One of the topics James tackles in chapter 1 is 'temptation'. When temptation comes, why do people tend to blame others and excuse themselves instead of taking responsibility for their actions? What might we do to resist temptation?

That section made me think about your sermon on The Lord's Prayer from a while ago: Lead me not into temptation. Because we're weak and resisting is difficult please spare us the challenge.

I think that resisting is about remembering who YOU are and then what that means is actually important

    James says Christians should be people who put the word of God into practice - in other words, we should 'walk the walk' and not just 'talk the talk'. Why is that important? What would it mean in practice?

    For whoever hears the Word but doesn't do what it says is likely someone who looks at his face in a mirror, doesn't improve his appearance, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like
