Return to the Word

Forgetting Identity (James 1:17-25)

Mark Fontecchio published on

James again reminds us that the trials of life are opportunities under God’s grace for growth in our faith and our walk with Christ. In these trials the temptation often comes to sin. God is not the one tempting us to sin because sin comes from within. Instead, God actively works in the world to bring men and women to redemption through the Gospel of Christ.

Failure to live according to our new identity in Christ is like looking in a mirror and forgetting who we have become. James was calling for believers to let the Word of God govern their lives.
