James 2 Part 2: Honor the Poor
Series The Book of James
Men left to themselves remain lifeless, robing themselves in the garments that the moths are busy eating, adorning themselves with corroding stones and rusting metals, building their towers out of match sticks right next to the open flame of tomorrow, and priding themselves of the very achievements already half buried by the sands of time….. they are the Fading flowers, the withering grass, and to dust they are quickly returning...
Yet, Christ has abounded towards us in such eternal blessedness, He has poured out from heaven perfect blessings and provisions such as we were not able to fully receive, exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, He has He gave us a portion of His own incorruptible inheritance and made us partakers of the divine nature, He gave us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, and has bestowed the total sum of all of eternity's wealth unto us in a way that is permanent, undefiled, and fadeth not away, He has left us without any conceivable or future lack. He has sealed us by The Spirit of promise, and given us those pleasures at God's right hand which are forevermore! 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
