Genuine And Joyful From The Inside Out

#13 - RESISTING THE DEVIL AND SUBMITTING TO GOD - LEARNING TO LIVE THE EXALTED LIFE

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
James 4:7 - 10

#13 in the series "James - Soundness Of Soul"

Today's text is so important. There's a whole distorted movement in the evangelical church that thinks you magnify God's grace by de-emphasizing discipline, purity and holiness. People will often come up to me and say I go to a grace church. You and I, according to this teaching, are to relax and enjoy God and be released from the rigors often associated with the Christian life, as though the call to grace and the call to diligence were mutually exclusive calls. James corrects this murky thinking.



If God gives grace, then I receive grace. And in the very first words of the very next verse - the first verse of our text today - James tells us what grace receivers look like. They submit to God and they resist the Devil - "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resistthe devil, and he will flee from you" (4:7).
