James 4:1-10 Session #7

  1. 1. James 4v1 – 4v10
  2. 2. 1 Where do the internal battles and infightings come from? Is it not from the sensualdesires within you that wage war within you? 2 You want things and can’t get them. Youeven kill and covet and still don’t get what you want and so you quarrel and fight. 3 Youdo not have things because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive because you areasking for the wrong things – all you want to do is to indulge your own self - gratifyingdesires. 4 This is a form of adultery. Don’t you realize that if friendship with this worldmeans hostility toward God? If you intend to be a friend of the world you will treat Godas your enemy. 5 What do you think the Scripture means when it says, “The Spirit he hascaused to live in us has a jealous regard for us?” 6 Still he gives even more grace,therefore he says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
