James (W2D4) Every Good and Perfect Gift

June 14, 2018


Week 2. Thursday:  Every Good and Perfect Gift


PRAY:  Ask God to speak to you from His Word.


READ:  James 1:16-17

16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.


UNDERSTAND: get a deeper understanding of the key words

  • Deceived. Don’t be fooled, tricked, lured, duped. Don’t make the fatal mistake.

  • Good & Perfect. Beneficial. That which satisfies. Complete. Whole.

  • Gift. Unearned. Favor. Given to you by someone else with no strings attached. God passes down many gifts to us --food, clothing, happiness, family, friends. Ultimately, this gift is given to us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

  • Does not change. God is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8); Jesus is like an anchor (Hebrews 6:18-19). He can be trusted. He is always and forever good to us even when we can not see it or understand it.
