雅各书的一些教训

James 1:22-23 “But be ye doers of the word, and not
hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be
a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a
man beholding his natural face in a glass:”
雅 1:22-23 “只是你们要行道 ,不要单单听道 ,
自己欺哄自己。因为听道而不行道的,就像人对
着镜子看自己本来的面目。”

Content of the Book of James
雅各书的内容


James directs Christians to godly living. In 108
verses, 54 clear commands are given. This
“bondservant of God” (1:1) writes as one
supervising other slaves. This is Christian
ethics compared with that from Christ.
雅各指示基督徒圣洁的生活。 有
108句,给了明确的54个命令 。这
个“上帝的奴仆”(1:1) 好比作
为一个监督其他奴隶一样 。这是基

Applications of the Book of James
雅各书的应用


James gives a practical exposition of “pure and
undefiled religion” (1:27). His two fundamental
emphases are personal growth in the spiritual life
and sensitivity in social relationships. Any faith that
does not deal with both personal and social issues
is a dead faith.
雅各给予一个实用的“那清洁没有玷
污的虔诚”(1:27)解释。他的两个
根本性的重点是个人成长的精神生活
和社会关系中的敏感性。任何不处理
个人和社会问题的信心是死的信仰。

Truth 6. The dangers of money: The Bible testifies that

perish and have no eternal value.

“God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does
He Himself tempt anyone.” (1:13)
God has no malicious intent toward man—
ever. In fact, I Corinthians 10:13 assures us
that in the midst of temptation “God is
faithful.” Paul says unequivocally that when
temptation is about to overwhelm the
believer, God makes a way of escape. The
responsibility for fleeing temptation belongs
with the individual, but God delivers us.

神没有向人有恶意的意图。事实上, 在哥
林多前书10:13告诉我们,保罗说:在试探

“The tongue is a fire.” (3:6)
Proverbs 18:21 declares that death and life are
in the power of the tongue. The tongue will
either (1) be set ablaze by the Holy Spirit in the
beauty of spiritual language and be graced
with the authority to prophesy, praise, bless,
and give life, or (2) be set ablaze by hell and
unleash corruption, cursing, and death. The
authority of a believer to declare the promise of
the Lord in ministry situations is directly
related to the careful and conscious use of
one’s tongue for God’s purpose.

“The wisdom that is from above is first pure,
then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full
of mercy and good fruits, without partiality
and without hypocrisy.” (3:17-18)
This is also true of the people who have
allowed the Holy Spirit to perform these
works of grace in their lives. We become like
the One we worship. As we serve the Lord
and welcome the Holy Spirit’s
transformation in us, we are completely and
irreversibly changed to be like Jesus.

“Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (4:7)
Protecting God’s people from the work of the devil is
based on two important factors. The first is our
submission to God in both word and spirit. The Bible
offers complete resources for establishing
righteousness in a person’s walk with the Lord, leaving
no room for a satanic foothold. The second is our
forceful resistance to demonic intrusion (v. 7) The
“violence” of the kingdom of heaven (Matt 11:12) is not
passive action; “pressing into” the kingdom of God (Lk
16:16) is aggressive and bold. Through prayer,
fasting, and unrelenting witness our spiritual warfare
(2 Cor 10:4) is victorious.

“Is anyone among you sick?” (5:13-16)
It is the responsibility of the sick to seek out
eldership to pray. The anointing with oil in 5:14
is not done for medical purposes. It symbolizes
the presence of the Holy Spirit. In some
traditions, anointing with oil is performed only
when death is imminent. Prayer and anointing
will bring healing. Anointing with oil is part of
the healing process. Confession of sin can be
a crucial part for physical healing. Jesus came
to save us in spirit, soul, and body (I Thess.
5:23).

“你们中间有病了的呢?”(5:13-16)
 生病的应该寻求长老祈祷。在5:14抹油
不用于医疗目的。它象征着圣灵的存在
。在一些传统,油恩膏只有当死亡是迫
在眉睫。祈祷和恩膏会带来医治。油恩
膏是医治过程中的一部分。认罪是治病
的重要部分。耶稣是不只来拯救我们的
灵,魂, 耶稣也拯救我们的身体(帖前
5:23)。
