But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. James 1:14

James has been speaking of enduring temptation, and that anytime someone faces tempting it cannot be attributed to God. As he said, “God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.” Therefore, the question is, “If God isn’t tempting me, then where is the temptation coming from?” The answer is that “each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.”

More correctly the word translated as “drawn away” is a present participle.Read the rest

This verse, among more to come, is one reason that the book of James is equated with wisdom literature.Read the rest

…but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. James 1:10

Here we have the contrast to what the previous verse stated. Taken together, they read –

“Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, 10 but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away.”

Just as the lowly brother should glory in his exalted status in Christ, the rich should glory in his lowly status as a fallen being, redeemed solely by the blood of Christ.Read the rest
