James 4:1-6

"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”? But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

Call to Worship

Adapted from

Proverbs 11:2 & 2 Chronicles 7:14

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. If my people who are called by my name humble themselves,
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”



Vs. 1-3 - The Source of Discord

Vs. 4 - Who Do You Love? 

Vs. 5-6 - God’s Jealous Love Gives More Grace 


Benediction

Romans 15:5-7

“May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,
that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father 
of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”
