The book of James challenges us with the most basic and essential realities of life, driving us to face up to the truth about following Jesus the Messiah. James gives us the truth without ornament. He cuts through the kinds of excuses and delusions we cloud ourselves with. It often seems that people speak of "faith" as if it were a matter of vague and dreamy ideas. People sometimes imagine that a mere intellectual assent to propositions within the Creed is the same as genuine faith in Jesus. Others think that "believing in Jesus" is just about eternal fire insurance rather than actually following the LORD Jesus day-by-day. As we study James we will find all such empty notions of "faith" destroyed.
Robbie Langford was born in Australia and has recently retired from missionary work after around 30 years and lives again in Australia. In the intervening years Robbie has been a missionary in some of the most interesting and dangerous parts of the world, teaching the children of Christian workers and training teachers in South America, Central Asia and Sudan. Robbie says that in so many tough situations Jesus has been more real to her than anyone else.
