Who Do You Think You Are?

Jerry Bridges has written a book entitled, Respectable Sins, in which he addresses sins which are common (and almost accepted) among professing Christians. His list of “respectable sins” includes ‘sins of the tongue’ and ‘judgmentalism’ both of which James addresses in our passage this week. James also explains what motivates us to speak against and judge one another –our proud self-centered desires; and why it is so wrong to judge one another – we are guilty of playing God Who alone has the right to judge.

I have found this passage to be very convicting. I hope that God’s truth will be a blessing to you this Sunday.
