Kitchen Table Devotions

James 2

Day 16

My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism                    James 2:1

There’s no greater problem to the Christian life than continuing to try to play God.  That’s what personal favoritism is and does.  The problem with stains is that they keep us selfish and superior in our own eyes.  One of the most beautiful things about Jesus is that He came to us, to live with us, and to die for us and He did it all without staining Himself even once.  That’s what you call glorious and beautiful and we can know that same glory if we are willing to let the Scriptures and the Savior deal with the stains of sin that leave us selfish and feeling superior.  There’s no love in a selfish and superior feeling life.   And Jesus made that glorious life our life if we will only request and receive Him and His word into our lives.
