James: A Different Kind of Life

James 5:13-17

If you break up the memorable moments of life into three categories they could probably mostly fit under the headings ‘happiness’, ‘trouble’, and ‘sickness’.  James moves to the end of his letter stating that these things are realities of life, but he challenges his readers and us to invite God to be a part of them.  And here we discover that we have God and our brothers and sisters in Christ to share our joy and pain with.  And we see a picture of a different kind-of life in the middle of our normal and every-day existence.  And it is wonderful!
