This week we begin a new series “How do we cope with James?” This week we ask “How do we cope with ... Temptation?” We all face difficulties in life and James has some great advice.
The Gospel Coalition have produced a playlist of 100 songs inspired by the book of James, and I intend to share some of those songs each day on the Blog, but you can listen to the full playlist during the next few weeks as we continue our studies in this book. I have benefited greatly from listening to these songs over and over again as I have asked God to speak from His word.
You can stream the playlist on Spotify or on Apple Music right now.
Here are the songs for today with a little thought about their subject matter.

Ray Ortlund says the following about forgiveness.
If we find forgiveness painful, so did God.
For us, it’s the pain that reveals the ultimate meaning of our lives — where what is given overrules what is deserved.
It’s the sacred center where peace calms our storm.
Forgiveness proves to be our high and holy privilege.
