James 3.13-4.12 | Righteous Community

James calls the church to be a unique community, a righteous community: a people in right relationship with God and with one another. But instead the churches are filled with fighting and quarrels. Why? Because of their passions and desires–what they want. But what we want and who we are is not just an internal driver, rather it is shaped by the relationships we are invested in. To be righteous community is to be people who are being transformed by the gospel: admitting their sinfulness, grieving the brokenness of the world, submitting to God and one another, and experiencing and sharing the grace of God.
