Sermon 26 of 71

Don't be a Friend of the World

Philip Cooper, James 4:1 - 4:5, 29 December 2019

Phil takes preaches on James 4:1-5 looking at the consequences of conflict with God.

James 4:1 - 4:5

4:1 What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”?
