Jody is in Modesto at a prayer summit so Dan takes over with the first chapter. What is it to have a living hope?
Leaving the book of James behind, Jody introduces the first letter of the Apostle Peter.
Patience, perseverance and the prayer of faith (James 5:13-16). This is the last installment of the series from the letter of James to the churches.
So be patient, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious crop from his land, being patient with it until it receives the fall and the spring rains.
Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. -James 4:7-8.
