James greets the church as sojourners through this world as James greets us as saints in the dispersion. We are a people who are to see ourselves as a guaranteed a land, but we are not in that land. There is no doubt that living life under the sun is challenging, and we can be tempted to give up on the sojourn. We, like Israel, might wonder if the Lord is coming to fulfill his promises. How do we know that the Lord is fulfilling His promises? How do we know that the Lord will bring us into the promised land? How does this impact our lives today?
