“Defying the devil with Christian Humility” (James 4:7-12)

Pastor Dale Jaech, September 30, 2018
Part of the 2018 Pentecost/Trinity series, preached at a Sunday Divine service

Prayer: O Heavenly Father, the light of the farthest galaxies declares Your existence. Your most humble creatures are astounding in their complexity. Your Word and all You have created teaches us that only fools can say, “There is no God.” Yet, by our sins we show ourselves to be fools. By our doubts, we deny Your grace. Through the humility of Your Son Jesus Christ, enlighten us. Humble these foolish hearts and call us to sincere repentance and faith by Your Spirit. Grant us the necessary boldness to bear witness to Your grace. Amen.

James 4:7-12

7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. 11Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. 12There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another? (KJV)
