James 4:1-4 – SOURCES OF CONFLICT
There are many sources for conflict that make us very unhappy. These are the “wars and fightings among us”.
DESIRE FOR WHAT IS NOT OF GOD – Vss. 1-2a – SENSUALITY (lusts)
DENIAL OF GOD’S POWER – Vs. 2b – STUPIDITY (We deny God’s power when we fail to pray.)
DEVIATION FROM GOD’S PLAN – Vs. 3 – SELFISHNESS (When we do ask God for things we often ask for the wrong reasons.)
DIVISION FROM GOD – Vss. 4-5 – SEPARATION – (Love of the world separates us from God.)
