Radical Living: the Book of James is in the In His Presence Teen Bible Study curriculum series.

Radical Living is an eighteen-week bible study curriculum walking through the book of James; encouraging teens to spend time in God’s presence, enjoying His words of truth. 

The Book of James shouts – people will be able to identify whether you are a Christian. They will see radical living when you obey God. Believe it! 

They will see a difference from the world. 

When the crowd observes genuine Christians living radically by being doers of God’s word, not simply listening to it, they see how genuine believers are not swayed by the world’s ways. They are in the world, but not of the world – unaffected by the world – impacting the world in Jesus’ name. 

Want to learn how? 

This book is filled with straight truth about living a life of faith that is right in God’s sight. Each week is broken down into five-day increments with a specific focus for each day, such as: reading God’s word to hear His voice, worship, prayer, an in-depth study of God’s word, and practical application.

Radical Living: The Book of James Features: 

Monday – Wake Up! – “Wake up, for the coming of our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.” Romans 13:11 NLT

Don’t waste your life! Get to know God! Read His word to know Him and to hear Him speak to you and to your current situation. Jesus is returning, are you ready to meet Him?

Tuesday – Worship – “But the hour is coming and is now hear, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” John 4:23 ESV

Look around you, do you see true worshippers? Are you a true worshipper? Learn about worship by reading timeless hymns and recognize how they align with God’s word of truth and to your everyday living.

Wednesday – Wait – “But those who wait on the LORD, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 NKJV

When we wait upon the Lord, persevering patiently in prayer, our strength is increased as our faith grows. Wednesday is focused on praying Scripture for your family, friends, community group, church, nation, leaders, and for yourself.

Thursday – Work – “Work hard so God can approve you. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 NLT

When you read God’s word and study it, you grow in your relationship with Him. This relationship anchors you, as you walk through life reaching out to others with the love of Jesus Christ. Thursdays, you will read God’s truths more in-depth so that you are literally overflowing with God’s word, prepared for whatever comes your way.

Friday – Witness – “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me … to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NKJV

After waking up, worshipping the Lord, waiting upon the Lord, and working, it’s time to witness. You are prepared to live out God’s word. James 1:22 NLT exhorts, “Don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.” The Christian adventure truly begins when we start applying God’s words of truth to our life, living out these truths in the everyday. Do we really have faith in Jesus Christ, if what we believe does not affect our words and actions in the everyday?
