Dealing with Strife

James 4:1-10

May 27, 2018

Rev. Bruce Brown

        I.  The Cause of Strife for Believers (vss 1-4)

        II.  Humble Submission to God's Grace Brings Peace (vss 9-10)

       III.  A Life of Joyful Grief is the Calling of Every Christian (vss 9-10)

“God humbles us not to keep us down, but to lift us up.  It is the contrite in heart that God esteems (Isaiah 66:2), and the poor in spirit who receive the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:3)… There should be no people more grief stricken, and yet more joyful, than Christians.  The lower we are, the more lifted we are.  It is the great paradox of the Christian life that we weep over our sin while singing in astounded joy of our salvation.”  Sam Allberry
