Where Fights Come From

Passage: James 4:1-6 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: Faith that Works

Length: 54 mins 30 secs Plays: 2800

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - James 4:1-6 presents a key problem that can exist even amongst the people of God. They still fight with each other - maybe in the home, at work, or even in the church. Where does this come from? James raises and answers his own question - from the lustful desires that remain part of humanity’s fallen nature, even after redemption. These desires regularly attach themselves to what people do not already possess, leading to all kinds of quarrels - from verbal assaults to literal warfare. So, where do fights and quarrels come from? They emerge from conflicting passions and rivaling affections in our hearts. So, James calls us to run to God’s over-abounding grace - “he gives more grace.” May the Lord help us to run to his throne grace this morning to find help in our time of need.
