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 is the song for today with a little thought about their subject matter.

Help! My Beliefs Are Viewed as Intolerant

What is needed is perhaps some fresh thinking about how to engage the non-Christian world about the exclusive truth claims of Christianity.
