What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you?
Sin defined: knowing what to do and not doing it. (James 4:17)
It’s flesh vs Spirit.
He rebukes them for
- No prayer (We have to be aware of our lusts before we can ever pray for help with them.)
- Selfish prayer (We ask God to bless our longings or keep them from someone else.)
“How tragic to declare war on a friend or spouse about something that God may have granted if only we’d asked.” ~ Tony Evans
Something to Do
Keep my desires aligned with the Spirit.
