“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.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
James 4: 4-7
- Is James saying in verse one that we ought not to have friends who are non-Christians? What do you think he is saying?
- Can you think of a time in your life when you chose the world and its “wisdom” over God?
- Can you remember a time when you submitted to God and He provided?
Memorize verse 7:
”Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Ask God to help you submit to Him. Ask Him to help you see more of His perfect character and trustworthiness.
