For the next few days I would like to explore meditations in the book of James. I will be using The Message translation throughout. Eugene Petersen has written a wonderful brief commentary on this book and so each day I will include a portion of his writings as well. Here is a how Peterson opens his commentary on the book of James:
When Christian believers gather in churches, everything that can go wrong sooner or later does.
Doesn't that spark a desire to read James again? Blessing on you as you read today's meditation below.
