James 2:1 (Listen)
The Sin of Partiality
2:1 My brothers,1 show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory.
James 2:5 (Listen)
5 Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?
Hymn: TLH 97, st. 1-3 :
Let us all with Gladsome Voice
1. Let us all with gladsome voice
Praise the God of heaven,
Who, to bid our hearts rejoice,
His own Son hath given.
2. To this vale of tears He comes,
Here to serve in sadness,
That with Him in heaven’s fair homes
We may reign in gladness.
3. We are rich, for He was poor;
Is not this a wonder?
Therefore praise God evermore
Here on earth and yonder.
