Sermon Title: Two-timing
Worship service date: Sept 30, 2018
Interim Pastor Thomas Hiltsley
Primary Bible verse:
Key sermon points:
James encourages us to listen, hear, and do the Word of God.
Double-mindedness is the cause of personal and relational difficulty.
James chapter 4 confronts double-mindedness in the Christian’s distraction with worldliness. Loving the world is to be an enemy of God. Two-timing God. Spiritual adultery.
Four guidelines for a Christian life-style that will help keep us true to Jesus, the Lover of our souls:
- Generously- caring and giving,
- Pleasing to God.
James continues in verses 7-10:
- Submit yourselves to God,
- Resist the Devil,
- Draw near to God,
- Cleanse your hands and purify your hearts,
- Mourn and weep,
- Humble yourselves before the Lord.
