Speaker: Lukus Counterman - James 3:13-18 continues to unpack the second major theme of the letter - wisdom and speech. The theme of wisdom first appeared in James 1:5-8 and then again in James 1:19-26. In our present context, James is explaining that by their good conduct, Christians should demonstrate heavenly rather than worldly wisdom. Specifically they should exhibit purity and peacefulness rather than jealousy and strife. When we fight for power in Christian circles, evil establishes a foothold. When we operate with worldly values, seeking our own honor and status, we even offer Satan an entrance into the house of God. May the Lord protect us, and teach us to live with wisdom from above.
