Message: “Economic Trials (James 1:9–12)” from Doug Van Meter

Economic Trials (James 1:9–12)

James Exposition

Contentment is an important issue for the believer to grapple with. We constantly fight against covetousness, and battle to have confidence in Christ rather than in our legal tender. Jackson Brown sang that advertisers “lay their claim to the heart and soul of the spender,” and he was absolutely correct. Advertisers tell us that we simply cannot be happy apart from their various products. James tackles this economic trial head on in vv. 9–12, and he tells us in no uncertain terms what we are to rejoice in. He makes the point powerfully that it is in Christ alone that we find our significance.
