  • 1. 5 Marks of a Mature Christian by Empowered Bible Study Ministries
  • 2. Five Marks of a Mature ChristianWelcome to Empowered Bible Study Ministries. This week we are starting a brand new serieson the book of James. In this study you will find that the book of James is one of the mostpractical books in the New Testament because it offers instruction and exhortation to Christianswho are experiencing problems, as all of us do. I pray you are blessed by this study.Studying God’s word is so important and so essential in our Christian walk isn’t it. It gives usinstructions on how to live a Godly life and how to live every moment of every day to the Gloryof God. As we study the Book of James we will grow and mature in our Christian walk.The book of James breaks down to Five Marks of a Mature Christian: 1. He is patient in testing (James 1) 2. He practices the truth (James 2) 3. He has power over his tongue (James 3) 4. He is a peacemaker, not a troublemaker (James 4) 5. He is prayerful in troubles (James 5)Did you know that about half of the verses in James contain verbs in the imperative form? Anytime you see an Imperative used in the Greek it means it is a command. This means that theseare not suggestions my friend they are commands instructing us of how to live godly lives. Infact, you cannot read the book of James without experiencing a strong tug of conviction. Jameswrites this so that we can grow and mature in our Christian walk.James will also tell us the pitfalls of failing to place our trust in the Lord, of judging one another,being prejudice, having improper speech and leaving God out of our plans. How many times dowe do this, right? We can all grow in this area.As we study the book of James over the next several weeks, come with an open heart willing tosee what the Lord wants you to learn. Let this book impact your life as you mature in yourChristian walk, as you build a stronger personal relationship with Jesus Christ.Next week, we will start chapter one. I look forward to studying God’s word with you as weunfold what God wants to teach us.God BlessEmpowered Bible Study Ministrieshttp://empoweredbiblestudy.blogspot.com/Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube
