The further along in the book of James we go, the more points there are when I think, ‘…Huh?’
It’s a bizarre experience to look ahead in the book, know that there are only a few weeks left to finish the last chapter and a half, and realize that you don’t really understand what they mean. It’s humbling and exciting.
I pray that our Lord would use these last few weeks to teach the saints at GFC through me… as he has taught me! Because if he doesn’t teach me, I’ll be in trouble.
My prayer now is that he’ll keep me back from trying to force my assumed interpretations on the text in a panic to say something. I know that ‘those who teach will be subject to stricter judgement,’ so I pray that he’ll show me how to ‘rightly divide the word’ in the coming works. If you get a chance, please remember to pray for me.
