Submitting to God, Part One

From Series: Faith That Works, Volume 3

James 4:7-10  (ID: 2591)

A truly humble Christian obeys God out of joyful adoration. Alistair Begg teaches us that submitting to God involves continually resisting the devil by prayer and the reading of God’s Word. Intimacy with God is not something that happens automatically. It must be purposefully cultivated by the means He has provided.


7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
