James 5:19-20 Reference: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VIVQ99Yiwiz4skS8opRhD84Xvl6z0KBG8g5iKcaUUvE/edit http://www.desiringgod.org/labs/bringing-back-a-wandering-believer http://www.desiringgod.org/labs/five-truths-about-eternal-security Characters: James Brothers in Christ The Wanderer The One who brings back the Wanderer Unknown he James Observations Considers the recipients to be his brothers v. 19 There are 15 other references in this letter alone calling them his brothers This shows James' caring, familial view of them v.19 Questions/Thoughts How much do I understand and know and view fellow believers as my brothers and sisters? I fear not as much. Summary James has a caring, family heart for the recipients of his letter. Brothers in Christ Observations Brothers also refers to sisters v.19 James thought that his kingdom siblings can wander from the truth v.19 A kingdom sibling can also be called a sinner v.19 This wandering sibling can return v.20 A sibling can turn a wandering sibling back to Christ Questions/Thoughts Do I think of those who wander or stray as kingdom siblings who I can see if I can turn them back? Or do I see wanderers with judgement and condemnation? And the irony is the moment I see those who stray in judgement and condemnation, I have strayed myself! Oh boy! Summary Brothers and sisters in Christ can include those who stray from the faith, and those who play a part in returning those who stray. The recipients and by extension believers today, are brothers and sisters of James, as believers are all siblings of one another from those past, present and future. The Wanderer Observations Is one who strays from the truth v. 19 James 1:18 suggests that this truth is the word of truth that makes us God's creatures, i.e. the gospel There are no specific ways mention of straying from the truth v.19, but there are many ways from James 1:5-17 alone, including doubting, not persevering in the faith. The wanderer can be brought back through another kingdom sibling v. 20 By doing so, the wanderer can then be saved from death and his sins can be covered v.20 Questions/Thoughts Who have been the ones who have turned me from my wandering ways? Have I thanked them for saving my soul from death, and for then making it so that my sins are covered? Summary The wanderer is the one who falls, strays from the truth, this being in part the truth of the gospel. This wanderer can be brought back and saved from death, his sins covered by the work of a fellow kingdom believer. The One who brings back the Wanderer Observations This is a fellow believer in Christ v. 19 This saving person turn a wanderer from his straying, back to the truth v. 20 This saving person is credited with saving the wanderer from death and covering his sins Questions/Thoughts How noble, and important this saving person is. How valuable and worth it it is to be this kind of saving person, to look out for our kingdom siblings. Summary A genuine believer can play a part in leading a wandering believer back to the truth. By doing so, this saving person would be considered by God as one who saved a person from death and covered his sins. Unknown he Observations the "he" is unspecified v. 20 could refer to the wandering believer or the saving person Questions/Thoughts Seems to be that defining this "he" is not crucial to understanding this passage. Summary This unspecified, generic "he", perhaps "anyone and everyone" should know how important the role of the saving person is. Take Away For me to recall who has saved me at various points in my life, and to be thankful for them For me to know the importance, value of being one who saves another, how God has given a place for all of us believers to look out for each other, and to reach out and turn one another back to Christ.
