Do you remember the first real Christian you ever met? There's a quality about these kinds of people.' They step up, put their money where their mouth is, and do the Word of God. Their lives beckon the followers of Jesus to stop phoning it in.
James was like this, a true agent of awakening. His life and words operate like a reverse snooze bar. As we start to drift into sleep, his words offer a wake-up call.
Through this Daily Text discipleship resource, James will implore us day after day to become real Christians. There are many people all around us who have been hurt by hypocrisy and who will only be healed by seeing the genuine article. Widows, orphans, and so many caught in the cruelty of inescapable poverty wake up every day with hopes of meeting their first real Christian. Jesus has all their numbers, and James has ours. He's looking for more friends like us. Let's join him and add to his tribe of the first real Christians.
