Week 3, Thursday, James 4:1-5


by, Pastor Sunil Balasundaram

Go to James 4:1-5

(Please read the passage before, or after, reading the devotion.)

God created me and saved me not only to be His child, but His friend! And He takes our friendship seriously. Maybe that’s why anything that goes against that relationship sours up, because real friendship puts the relationship first, over myself. And, when I become self-oriented, self-centered, as the rest of the world wants and is, I end up acting against God and our friendship. God longs for me to yearn for what His will is, even as He wants what is best for me. Isn’t that what real friendship is?



Wow! Almighty God, You want me to be Your friend? That’s why You made me, sent Jesus to die for me, gave Your Holy Spirit to be in me? How can I be so senseless to want the trivial things the world entices me with, when I have all of You? Forgive me Loving God. Open all my senses to experience what You have for me, that I may desire You and what You will with my entire being. Amen.
