Your Life Reveals Your Spiritual Condition (James 3:13-18)
Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost - September 16, 2018
As we apply the Word of God to our lives today:
If we are honest before our Lord —- and we remember that he is our Savior —- a review like this list from James can encourage us to live for him and be a blessing to the people around us.
Are we: envious, selfishly ambitious, sinful boasting, ungodly, unspiritual, evil.
Are we: humble, pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, merciful, fruits of faith, impartial, sincere, peace-making.
We have a Savior who was all these good things for us and did none of the sinful things.
May we go away from church today as God’s wise and righteous people, intent to live in a way that honors our Savior and serves others.. Amen
