Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we start the book of James with Chapter 1 and in our text we see James giving us practical instruction on Genuine Religion as he explains how we should endure trials and temptations as we not only listen but do what the Bible Instructs with a goal of wisdom. In making application we see that a relationship with the Lord is the key to a successful Christian Life. How about you? Do you see how you need a relationship with the Lord? Let us learn from our text today and the Words of James who gives us great instruction for us to seek a relationship with the Lord as we can ask the Lord for wisdom as he giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not.
