Bible Study

Getting Perspective
James 4:11-17

Doing the will of God is another test of a Christian’s faith. A Christian should want to carry out the will of God with all their heart.

Those people who do not submit to God’s will are saying that they rule their own life and are essentially rejecting God’s salvation plan.

James uses the example of a businessman planning his day. This example doe not condemn planning, rather it demonstrates the significance of making God’s plans a part of your plan.

There is nothing better to show the character of a true believer than his desire to do the will of God. Being a Christian and living a Christian life is not just avoiding the evils or the wrongs things in life. Rather, it focuses on doing the right things as well.
