This week we begin a new series “How do we cope with James?” This week we ask “How do we cope with ... Being Righteous?” 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 is the song for today.
James 1:19–27 Doers of the Word,” Christcentric
I’m not sure that we will be using this one in church, it may not be to everyone’s taste but the words are based on James.

I’ll add the songs to this playlist each day.

The Broad Wall and a Refugee Crisis
Q. Why Was it Necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to Die?
A. Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God. By his substitutionary atoning death, he alone redeems us from hell and gains for us forgiveness of sin, righteousness, and everlasting life.
