  • 1. SUBMIT TO GOD James 4:1-12 WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 2. JAMES 3:13-18  13 Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here‟s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It‟s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts.  14-16 Mean-spirited ambition isn‟t wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn‟t wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn‟t wisdom. It‟s the furthest thing from wisdom—it‟s animal cunning, devilish conniving. Whenever you‟re trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others‟ throats.  17-18 Real wisdom, God‟s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 3. JOSEPH & HIS BROTHERS, GENESIS 37:1-2 1-2 Jacob settled in the land where his father had lived as an alien, the land of Canaan. This is the story of the family of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was shepherding the flock with his brothers; he was a helper to the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father‟s wives; and JOSEPH brought a bad report of them to their father. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 4. JOSEPH & HIS BROTHERS, GENESIS 37:3-4 3-4Now ISRAEL loved Joseph more than any other of his children, because he was the son of his old age; and he had made him a long robe with sleeves. 4But when his BROTHERSsaw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably to him. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 5. JOSEPH & HIS BROTHERS, GENESIS 37:5-8 5-8 Once Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him even more. He said to them, „Listen to this dream that I dreamed. There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright; then your sheaves gathered around it, and bowed down to my sheaf.‟ His brothers said to him, „Are you indeed to reign over us? Are you indeed to have dominion over us?‟ So they hated him even more because of his dreams and his words. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 6. JOSEPH & HIS BROTHERS, GENESIS 37:9-11 9-11 He had another dream, and told it to his brothers, saying, „Look, I have had another dream: the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me.‟ But when he told it to his father and to his brothers, his father rebuked him, and said to him, „What kind of dream is this that you have had? Shall we indeed come, I and your mother and your brothers, and bow to the ground before you?‟ So his brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the matter in mind. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 7. JOSEPH & HIS BROTHERS, GENESIS 37:12-24 17b-18 So Joseph went after his brothers, and found them at Dothan. They saw him from a distance, and before he came near to them, they conspired to kill him. 19 Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; then we shall say that a wild animal has devoured him, and we shall see what will become of his dreams.‟ 22 But when REUBENheard it, he delivered him out of their hands, saying, „Let us not take his life.‟ Reuben said to them, „Shed no blood; throw him into this pit here in the wilderness, but lay no hand on him‟—that he might rescue him out of their hand and restore him to his father. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 8. JOSEPH & HIS BROTHERS, GENESIS 37:25-28 25-28 Then they sat down to eat; and looking up they saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead, with their camels carrying gum, balm, and resin, on their way to carry it down to Egypt. Then JUDAH said to his brothers, ‘What profit is there if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? Come, let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and not lay our hands on him, for he is our brother, our own flesh.’ And his brothers agreed. When some Midianite traders passed by, they drew Joseph up, lifting him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 9. JOSEPH & HIS BROTHERS, GENESIS 37:29-37 31-37 Then they took Joseph‟s robe, slaughtered a goat, and dipped the robe in the blood. They had the long robe with sleeves taken to their father, and they said, ‘This we have found; see now whether it is your son’s robe or not.’ He recognized it, and said, „It is my son‟s robe! A wild animal has devoured him; Joseph is without doubt torn to pieces.‟ Then Jacob tore his garments, and put sackcloth on his loins, and mourned for his son for many days. All his sons and all his daughters sought to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted, and said, „No, I shall go down to Sheol to my son, mourning.‟ Thus his father bewailed him. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 10. JAMES 4:1-12 (THE MESSAGE) 1-2 Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because you want your own way, and fight for it deep inside yourselves. You lust for what you don‟t have and are willing to kill to get it. You want what isn‟t yours and will risk violence to get your hands on it. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 11. JAMES 4:1-12 (THE MESSAGE) 2-3 You wouldn‟t think of just asking God for it, would you? And why not? Because you know you‟d be asking for what you have no right to. You‟re spoiled children, each wanting your own way. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 12. JAMES 4:1-12 (THE MESSAGE) 4-6 You‟re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn‟t care? The proverb has it that “he‟s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you‟ll find. It‟s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.” WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 13. JAMES 4:1-12 (THE MESSAGE) 7-10 So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he‟ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it‟s the only way you‟ll get on your feet. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 14. JAMES 4:1-12 (THE MESSAGE) 11-12 Don‟t bad-mouth each other, friends. It‟s God‟s Word, his Message, his Royal Rule, that takes a beating in that kind of talk. You‟re supposed to be honoring the Message, not writing graffiti all over it. God is in charge of deciding human destiny. Who do you think you are to meddle in the destiny of others? WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13
  • 15. 20 “I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be ONE. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. John 17:20-21. WHope/SamuelOng/4.8.13 •IDENTITY •WITNESS
