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 Perspective of Wisdom (James 3:13-18): The book of James raises the rhetorical question, “Who among you is wise and understanding?” Tony Evans says what makes a wise person is knowing God’s truth and being able to apply it to a given situation in life. In this lesson, discover the source of true wisdom and how, through wisdom, God can bring you a spirit of tranquility.

The Predicament of Worldliness (James 4:1-12):
Where do wars come from? The book of James says they arise from our own desires for pleasure, which in turn, create division and strife. Tony Evans says worldliness is reflected through such division and strife and can only be overcome by one thing: total dedication to God. In this lesson, learn to draw near to the Lord to resist the temptation of worldliness.

The Pursuit of God – (James 4:7-12):
 The Declaration of Independence talks about the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But pursuing something is no guarantee you’ll find it. In this message, Tony Evans comments on how to make your pursuit of God more successful as he focuses on lessons from the book of James.

The Planning of Life – (James 4:13-17):
 The old saying goes, “he who fails to plan, plans to fail.” Tony Evans explains that without the right kind of planning, you’re more than likely to run into disappointment—or worse.

The Powerlessness of Riches (James 5:1-12):
The Bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil. But Tony Evans wants to remind you that this danger is not simply having money but loving it. How content are you without all the money that you would like to have? Learn how the love money can maneuver you away from your life of faith in this lesson on riches.

The Practice of Patience (James 5:7-12):
 Wouldn’t it be great if life’s trials only lasted 24 hours? Yet some of us are trapped in trials that last for months or even years. This is why James wanted to remind us to endure our trials with the act of patience. Discover the essence, example and evidence of patience as defined by James in this lesson by Tony Evans.

The Power of Prayer (James 5:13-20): 
There are two things that should characterize a Christian: If you are going through hardship, you pray. If you are going through good times, you praise God. Tony Evans wants to remind you—whether you are suffering, or things are going well—to look toward God and communicate with Him in prayer. Experience God’s power in both the ups and the downs in this lesson on prayer.

The Preservation of Backsliders (James 5:19-20):
 We all know people who appear to no longer be progressing in their faith. Tony Evans says there is no such thing as static Christianity. Either you are moving forward in your faith or you are sliding backward. In this lesson, learn about backsliding Christians and the responsibility we have to pursue those who are straying.
