James 3:13 - 4:10
In order to begin to understand Scripture, seek first how that verse fits with the person and work of Jesus Christ, especially His blessed Gospel, the center of every bit of the Scriptures.
Through John 3:16, we understand that Jesus came to take into His body every jealousy and selfish ambition, so as to bring truth and peace to us in His forgiving love from the cross.
The portion of James which forms the basis of today's sermon focuses on sin's war and God's peace.
1. There is a war within our hearts. As long as you are in the mortal body, the devil enlists your thoughts, urges, and body parts to sin.
As James shows, the purpose of the tempter is not only to wreak havoc inside of you but also to have it work out in the open; the devil means for the war within you to wound and kill the whole Church.
Because the sinfulness we bring with us to this place can be dealt with by the forgiving grace of God or become a source of discord in our very midst - our church must always be a place where people can have bad things known about them and still be loved and cared for as the baptized Christians they are.
Too many people languish in their sinful wounds, hide their past sins, their present addictions. Their passions are at war within them. They bring trouble in their families, in their church families, and among friends, and they alienate people.
2. You have a great Savior with a great salvation. There's a war going on inside you, but God refuses to lose it. God refuses to lose you.
If there is anyone you want to be jealous over you, it is God. For Him to be jealous is to say He wants you to Himself, and He wants no one else to have you - no false god, false doctrine, false hope, or the devil himself ever to have you.
Forgiveness is God's wonderful way of neutralizing the devil's accusatory protests against us and having him flee from you and me.
God has given you the grace of sins forgiven and the privilege of sowing in peace.
