The wars and fighting among you are caused by the wars within you.

A. The desires for pleasure
1. Unreasonable desire for something we don’t have
2. Murderous envy for those whose possessions we love or cherish
3. Open antagonism and discord

The reference is not to physical adultery, but to spiritual adultery. Disobeying God is like breaking a marriage vow.
1. He was filled with the Spirit.

2. He overcame His own flesh.

3. He was familiar with Scripture.

C. Pride
The word “pride” means one who shows himself above others; unwillingness to submit.
1. Pride does not recognize its own need. Pride so admires itself, it cannot recognize any need.

2. Pride occupies itself with thoughts of its own goodness.

3. The proud will not let God help.

God’s grace operating in the heart of the humble believer neutralizes the passion that wars in the believer.
1. Submit to God
2. Resist the devil
3. Draw near to God
4. Sanctify our lives
5. Purify our hearts
6. Repent when we are wrong
7. Allow the Lord to lift us up

The Principle of Humility
James 4:6
…“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”

The Promise of Humility
James 4:10
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

The Products of Humility

The elimination of evil-speaking and unscriptural judging
V11-12

The humble live in daily dependence on God.
James 4:13-15
13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; 14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”
Humility eliminates boasting from our lives.
James 4:16
16 But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.

You can tell a great deal about an individual by what they brag about. The proud boast about themselves; the humble brag on their God.
