James: Part 8

Quit Cheating on God!

James 4:1-10

Sunday, June 11, 2017

In 4:1-10 James challenges us to quit “cheating on God”. He makes it very clear that the problem isn’t from without, or with other people, the problem is us. It’s the sin and pride within us. Using some strong language, James tells us we must quit “cheating on God” and committing spiritual adultery. Ezekiel 16 and all of Hosea teach the same thing vividly in the Old Testament, and it’s likely that James had Scriptures like these in mind as he was writing. Instead we must humble ourselves before the Lord. To be humble means “to know your place”. We also briefly discussed how Christians should engage with culture through the filter of “receive, reject, or redeem”.
