James chapter 4. These verses reminded me of an old saying: "Does your walk match your talk?" In chapter 3, James talked a lot about our "talk". In this chapter he talks a lot about our "walk". Each should match the other in the life of a Christian.
James 4:1-3 Lust=War & fighting ; Lust= Killing & unfulfilled desires; Lust= praying for wrong things
James 4:4 Friend of the World= Enemy of God
James 4:6 He giveth more grace! (But not to the proud!)
James 4:7 SUBMIT to God -- RESIST the devil
James 4:8 Come near to God=He will come near to you. (But clean your hands and your heart before you come)
James 4:10 Bow low before the Lord and He will lift you up.
James 4:11 Don't speak evil of others. God did make us judges.
James 4:13-15 "Don't put off 'til tomorrow what you can do today." = Life is short
James 4:17 Not doing the right you know to do is as sinful as doing the wrong you know you should not do!
I pray that I will walk more often in the footsteps of our Lord than I have in the past!
