Chapter 2 is about instructions public on worship. God wants all people to be saved and come to knowledge of the truth (verse 2:4). Paul teaches that, "For there is one God and one meditator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus" (verse 2:5). Some of this chapter was about good deeds like in chapter 2 of James. (Verses 9-10). Verse 2:4 really stuck out to me.
I thin that verse(5) was the one that stuck out to me the most as well. We are called to pray for everybody and for all places. We are bound together though Christ since he is the one that has given us freedom as we read about in Gal as well. He calls us to life our hands, which i think means to look towards God and put aside whatever differences we have, whatever anger we have built up, and get rid of all the controversy that is in the way and just pray and worship the one true God.
I have to ask you girls (and even you guys) what do you think or how did it make you feel to read 11-15?

The point that stuck out to me was the same point that you guys and Emma made that Jesus wants all people to be saved through His grace. When we were reading James the same thing was mentioned. It is definitely a theme in the Bible.
