私欲 [Desires]





Book: James (New Testament)
Author: James

James 4:1 :“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members?”

Today’s Meditation: James 3:18 reminds us that church is supposed to be a place of peace that sow fruit of righteousness. Church should not be a place of fights. The problem is not in the words but our inner desires. The falling out conditions in church and fights come from the inner evil mind of fights among human. Romans 7:23 speaks that the law in our members that war against the law of mind is the main reason of fights in church. This chapter of James speaks of three enemies of believers namely desires, world and Satan. Desires come from the inner us. It is difficult to be dealt with. Desire is endless in human society and is the reason of fights. Desire is the sources of evil and it destroys life in church. It is up to us to pleasure ourselves or to pleasure God. This decision will lead to different outcomes in life with the former brings many cruel fights to our life.
