Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin. James 4:17

The words here are not unlike those of Paul in Romans 14:23 –

But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.”

Doubting, faith, to know – these things are internal, and yet we are shown that we are held accountable for doubting when we do not eat in faith.Read the rest

But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. James 4:16

James is still speaking of the same subject which goes back to verse 13. It is the boasting which arises out of the assumption that we have the future in control, and that we can say, “Today or tomorrow we will do this and that.” Without including the Lord in the matter, we are boasting of possessing that to which we have no right to claim.Read the rest

Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” James 4:15

James just spoke of the life of man being a mere vapor which appears for a short time and then it fades away. Because of this, it is boastful to claim that we will do something or another in the future.Read the rest

…whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. James 4:14

James now builds upon what he had just said. The readers (whoever they may be) were presumptuous and said, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit.” The words were presumptuous and boastful because they made a claim upon a matter as if it had already been settled, but which they had no right to the claim in the first place.Read the rest

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”;  James 4:13

James is beginning a fourth thought in this one chapter. He started out by speaking about pride and how it affects our relationship with God in verses 1-6.Read the rest
