Review: The James Code by:O.S. Hawkins
About the Book:
The James Code helps believers go from knowing about God to living for God.
Bestselling author of The Joshua Code and The Jesus Code, O.S. Hawkins is back with a new book that is all about putting your faith into action. The James Code is practical, personal and action-packed straight from one of the most popular books of the Bible.
Once readers have devoted themselves to Scripture memory in The Joshua Code, and have equipped themselves to give answers in The Jesus Code, The James Code challenges readers to give feet to their faith. Hawkins gives applicable truth from the book of James emphasizing that an effective Christian life is not about faith and works, but is about faith that works.
As with The Joshua Code and The Jesus Code, all royalties will go to Mission:Dignity, whose mission supports retired pastors and their wives or widows who have faithfully served God’s people and now find themselves struggling to meet even basic needs.
I was always told as a child that if you ever wanted to be put in your place o taken down from your pedestal to read the book of James. It is a book that gives sound advice on life in general and how to treat it with the utmost respect as well as to know what God wants us to do with it. Even after all these years since the book was written, I still feel that it applies to us today, as well.
Living for God is a fearful experience in the beginning because you don't see the future that He does--so at times it may feel that you are hopelessly falling. But living for Him is an amazing way to live! he will take you through some valleys but His mountaintop experiences will prove to be the best of your life. Knowing that I have an intimate relationship with Him changes everything about how I view the world today. God is so good!
The James Code is an authentic look at the book of James and I love the thorough study it will be one that I come back to year after year.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
