How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

James 4:13-17

My Sermon Notes from September 6, 2020 Full Text:

雅各書 James 4:13-17

13 嗐,你們有話說:「今天、明天我們要往某城裡去,在那裡住一年,做買賣得利。」 14 其實明天如何,你們還不知道。你們的生命是什麼呢?你們原來是一片雲霧,出現少時就不見了。 15 你們只當說:「主若願意,我們就可以活著,也可以做這事或做那事。」 16 現今你們竟以張狂誇口。凡這樣誇口都是惡的。 17 人若知道行善卻不去行,這就是他的罪了。

13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Discussion Questions:

1. Why is knowing, doing and depending on God’s will important for us? Please share your personal thoughts on this matter.
2. Please share an experience where you experienced the will of God in your life.
