Verse of the Day - Day 288

Bring Back a Sinner - James 5:19–20

By

Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

James 5:19–20
My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Bring Back a Sinner

James is speaking to Christians when he says "my brothers." This verse makes it plain that sometimes believers stumble and get off track. The Bible says in Hebrews 3:12-13 that we ought to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ daily so that no one turns away from the living God.

If you see a fellow Christian backsliding, or drifting away from the Lord, make every effort to reach out a hand of fellowship. And stay on the alert yourself. Each and every one of us is capable of wandering from the truth.
