A Quick Review of James
  • Book could emerge out of the last verse showing us what causes us to wander
  • 1:1-3:12 shows us illustratively what is most typical; not exhaustive
    • Trials, 1:2-12: Count it all joy
    • Temptations, 1:13-18 God gives every good and perfect gift
    • Hearing but not doing the Word of God, 1:19-27, Pure religion shows itself in deeds
the things that caus us to wander 1 1 3 12
The Things that caus us to Wander1:1-3:12

Prejudice, 2:1-13, exalting us and our kind over others: familial, ecclesial, denominational, geographical, racial, theological

Professing that we possess faith when there is no fruit, 2:14-26. Saved by faith alone but not by faith which remains alone

The Tongue, 3:1-12, mentioned in three different situations in James, Largest and most indicative of profession without possession

then what we most need wisdom 3 13 18
THEN what we most need: Wisdom3:13-18
  • Worldly Wisdom: rational and logical according to unredeemed human thinking, most prevalent, 3:13-16
  • Godly Wisdom: rational and logical emerging from the Word of God through the Spirit of God, 3:17-18
then what wars against the wisdom of god 4 1 5 12
THEN what wars against the wisdom of God, 4:1-5:12
  • Worldliness, 4:1-10, 4 cf. 11. Given the remedy in 7-10
  • Condemnation, Control, and Comfort. The remedy is suffering, 4:11-5:6
  • The root of both is pride and the remedy for both is humility lived out with integrity and no duplicity
finally the key is right worship rooted in proper prayer 5 7 18
FINALLY, the Key is Right Worship rooted in proper prayer, 5:7-18
  • Prayer must be as God defines it
  • Prayer must be directed to God and His glory
  • Prayer must not terminate on us and our wants or our will
  • Prayer must be done as a part of the church not as individuals isolated from the body
  • Prayer must come out of a community that cares enough to confess sin so as to experience ultimate healing.
