God’s Truth for Trying Times - 9/17/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: James 5:19-20

My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. [James 5:19-20 ESV] 


CONSIDER: Here is assurance that when we do what God instructs, he will act upon his promises, and lovingly forgive, as we lovingly relate. He wants us to live by the truth, and the spirit helps us to know when we wander, and others are to help us get back on track. That is merciful and God is gracious.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
