Series Description: What does it mean to live like a Christian? Going to church regularly? Listening to Christian radio? Eating a particular brand of chicken sandwich? The book of James helps us to sort out what a Christian life really looks like. James speaks directly and challenges us to view ourselves in the light of Scripture so that we can grow to be more and more like Jesus.

The Point Of James (James 1:1-2): It is God’s goal for Him to have first place in every area of our lives. In the book of James, James discusses how God uses the application of the Bible to show us His rule in our lives. Join Tony Evans as he ventures to ask you a very simple question of ethics: by whose standard will you live your life?

The Purpose of Trials (James 1:3-12): How are you able to find joy when your world is falling apart? Tony Evans says your understanding or misunderstanding of trials can change your perception of joy. Learn to encounter your trials with joy, and discover the difference between joy and happiness in this lesson.

The Price of Temptation (James 1:13-18):
 God often tests us so that He might prove and demonstrate our growth. But Tony Evans says that when sin enters the trial, God is not to blame. Learn how the source of temptation to sin is not from God, but from within ourselves.

The Practice of Scripture (James 1:19-25): There are many believers today who would prefer to audit their Christian lives—they want the information but are not willing to put in the work. But Tony Evans says that in order for the Word of God to work you must also be willing to apply the knowledge. In this lesson, learn about the resignation, reception, and reflection of scripture that you need to know to better respond to trials and resist the temptations of the enemy.

The Purity of Religion (James 1:19-25): There’s more to being religious than doing religious things. Tony Evans digs into the difference and talks about the true motivation for good works.

The Problem of Partiality (James 2:1-13): Suppose that Jesus played favorites. The result would be that many of us would not be here today. While the cross is available to all who seek it, in this lesson Tony Evans discusses the trap of personal favoritism and how that attitude cannot coincide with Jesus Christ.

The Perfecting of Faith (James 2:14-26): The Bible says there can be no faith without works, but it also says there can be no works without faith. So where is the middle ground? In this lesson, Tony Evans seeks to explain the difference between the two. Join him as he discusses how faith without works can keep you from experiencing God’s power in your life.

The Poison of the Tongue (James 3:1-12): Did your parents ever warn you to watch your mouth? Tony Evans says that if you have the power to control your tongue, you have the power to control any weakness in your life. In this lesson, discover the destructive power of the tongue and how controlling your tongue is more of a spiritual issue than a physical one.
