Here we are at Christmas time under a cloud of witness that is causing the Church to suffer more than any time in my life. Thank the Lord we are living, walking with God today! Lets look at our attitude and Behavior to day as we study the life of James. 
We are in race, that requires discipline, it is not easy. Let’s not flow with Culture, but reflect Christ in all we do and say, so we have the light of Gods love, mercy and grace on, that we can find Justice in our world today. Let’s read
James 1
New King James Version
Greeting to the Twelve Tribes
James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad:
 Bondservant does not sound good, but how do we conduct ourselves. Are we a servant of the Lords or addicted to doing what Satan likes that is totally wrong? God is totally the author of life and not sinning, He placed a tree in the garden that man was not supposed to eat. But man did, for they did not practice righteousness to prove they were Gods children. They saw, desired, gave, and then hide from God! Are we practicing righteousness today? Life needs the ability to practice Righteousness not be masters, but ministers of the gospel of Christ. Notice James is greeting the Church. 
He says greeting My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces [a]patience.  What a thought count it joy. Philosophy teaches be calm and God teaches let’s be joyful. How does that work? But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be [b]perfect and complete, lacking nothing. Count it all joy! Here they are scattered all around the world and hated of most people. Scattered in wrath. Persecuted, sought after so they sought shelter in the storms of life, as God always has a remnant who run to Him not away from Him. The Church is always in need as trouble seems to be our lot. Is all trouble wrong? No unless we do wrong, let us have a desire to please the Lord as we are faced with a lot of lies to day. Who can we believe in, the media? The truth is now a lie and a lie the truth is really true today. It takes patience to see what God has in store as God does not create sin Himself, but Satan is the one who ticks and addicts us to his way or lies of life. Life is crazy as temptation are crazy in our world today. People not wanting cops, but like the lawlessness of tearing down what was built for our Good. We need Grace to day to give us. Justice in every area of life, so we can count it all joy in what we are seeing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. Liberty to do what is right, is always a blessing and God wants us to have wisdom today as never before and it is not the wisdom of googol; but wisdom that comes as we read and mediate upon God words, so we are not a reproach. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. Lord help us to know the truth so we can be assured of Gods love without doubting. We are one united body like the Lord.  Reallt! For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. Lord we need help in receiving anything of value in Gods catalog of riches. His Church is full of everything we need as mankind, that the reason the Church is necessary, so we are not unstable like water. Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, 10 but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. Let us see we are of a low degree, but poverty does not destroy faith we are heirs of God blessing. Philippians 1:29 says to you it is given to suffer, and are we not suffering from the pandemic of coronavirus. 11 For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits. Never in my life I have seen so much being burned up to day by nature and man, but thank the Lord for those that are surviving the storms of life. 
Loving God Under Trials
12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Thank the Lord, suffering is not eternal, it is a blessing for it gives us patience to go through it. That we can have eternal blessing in heaven. Life eternal with a crown of life. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. God is not the author of sin, we need to blame ourselves for looking desiring, taking and giving then having to hide. Satan is out to trap people with addictions to lust for evil. Sin draws out our grace not our corruption. 


14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.  Satan never sleeps and is out to destroy all of God children with doubt and unbelief.  Let’s make sure we’re not blaming others, but ourselves for doing what is wrong, bad and ugly. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. Remember, the heart of man is desperately wicked and who can know it. That is the reason we see so many dead men walking, they do not know who they are and where they are going, for they are not sensitive to the way, Truth and life as we abide in the Lord. 16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.  Let’s not be in err or bewilderment God loves us and Satan hates Gods love.17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Are you seeing the good of God’s creation, nature is perfect and Lord help us to stand in awe of Your love and mercy today. 18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. Can you see it; that is the truth, it is God’s grace we are still suffering from so many things, but God hands are outstretched still. Praise the Lord hallelujah. 
Qualities Needed in Trials
19 [c]So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Lord help us to hear one another and see the truth, and show it by the way we speak the truth and show no anger. That is be in control of your tongue for it is a deadly enemy when given over to the devil.  Wrath cannot work righteousness of God. Anger is worst in the church, for it will divide and destroy relationships. Teaching anger management gave me. The ability to see anger as my biggest friend when handle right and when it was out of order it was my biggest enemy.
Doers—Not Hearers Only
21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and [d]overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. Here we see the need to suppress or lay aside all filthiness, and superfluities of naughtiness. That’s the reason sin defiles and we need to watch against it, cast it out of our minds. Even sins of the thoughts, need to be avoid that is all errors, or wrongs so your pleasing God and standing up for the truth.22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  Let’s hear and believe and show it by what we do. Practice what we hear, God say. Practice what you preach! Let’s be doers of the word, so our testimony is true! Let’s learn and practice meditation so we become like Gods love mercy and grace.  23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. When you look in the mirror who do you see? Let’s not flatter ourselves, for Jesus flatters no one. Romans 7:9 says of Paul I was alive without the law, we need to see our spots and deformities and die out to sins. Stop sinning. God sees, so He can wipe away all that is unclean. The law is liberty to do Gods will and get peace to give to others.  25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. Are you free today to do what you please, I trust you can without fear of Satan’s lies. Have you ever heard get a life! We need to walk in the spirit of Gods and that is have reverence and worship God, so we have faith and hope in God to answer our prayers according to His will, so our souls five senses of consequence, imagination, reason, memory and affection can be centered upon the Lords will for our bodies five sense, of what do we see, hear, taste, smell and feel. Salvation is not a form, it is a life. 26 If anyone [e]among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. Lets not run people down and over,  but work at being nice like the Lord is to us all. God wants us to be faultless pure and Holy as we seek Gods favor as He is watching over us by loving us, so we become like God in all we do and say. Let’s not get caught loving the flesh of our eyes, or become prideful of who we are, but keep our selves unspotted. LORD HELP us to live our lives with God today as representative and ambassadors In the Kingdom of God.
