Grace (chapter 4)

James reminded his readers that scripture said that God is jealous.  He wants his spirit to be in them.  He will give more grace.  He opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.  They should submit to God.  At the same time, they should resist the devil, so that he would flee from them.  If you draw near to God, he will draw near to you.  As double-minded sinners, they should cleanse their hands and purify their hearts by lamenting, mourning, and weeping.  Their laughter and joy should be turned into mourning.  They need to humble themselves before the Lord.  Then he will exalt them.  Do you let God’s grace work in you?
