 journey_480“The Journey” is Living Springs’ commitment to read a chapter of the Bible every day. We all follow the same reading schedule so that we can encourage each other along the way. And our pastors post occasional blogs about the readings to instruct and inspire us.

Want to join? This week’s daily readings are listed below, along with questions to guide your reading. To receive each week’s readings in your email, sign up for the Journey blog!

 James 1

What does testing of your faith produce?  From whom can we get wisdom?  How can we get it?  Does God tempt anyone?  When does a desire become sin?  When does desire bring death?  What does wrath not produce?  From what are we to remove ourselves?  How can we deceive ourselves?  What should we keep under control?  What is pure and undefiled religion?

 James 2

How are we to treat people?  What law does this fulfill?  How do you prove your faith?  Who else believes in God?  What separates us from them?  What work justified Abraham’s faith?  How are we justified?

 James 3

Who is more accountable before God?  What should not proceed at the same time from our mouths?  Where does envy and self-seeking come from?  What will the wisdom that comes from God produce?

 James 4

What is friendship with the world?  How does this affect our relationship with God?  How can we make the devil flee?  How can God draw near to us?  If we do not consider God’s will first, what does our boasting become?

 James 5

Who are our examples for patience and endurance?  How should you guarantee an oath?  What judgment do you get from swearing falsely your oaths?  Who is it that may wander from the truth? What if he does not turn back?  What does it mean to “turn him back”?
