James: Part 4

Quit Playing Favorites

James 2:1-13

Sunday, May 14, 2017

James is very straightforward in his commands to the Church. In 2:1-13 he makes it clear that Christians shouldn’t play favorites, as it’s not consistent with who they are in Christ. He gives 3 reasons by way of illustration: 1) Playing favorites and showing favoritism is wickedness. 2) God doesn’t play favorites or show partiality. Everyone is on equal footing before God. 3) God’s Law doesn’t play favorites, if you break any of it you’re accountable for all of it. Finally, he ends by exhorting us: rather than play favorites, we should show mercy, just as God shows us mercy.
