Have you ever missed your exit or turn while driving? I find this to be one of the more irritating
things I do from time to time, and this typically happens because my thoughts were divided.
Instead of being focused on driving to my location, I was distracted thinking about something
Throughout the book of James, he is calling us to action so that we stay focused. Because James
knows that you and I can be divided when it comes to our relationship with God. Or to put it
more directly, we are disloyal in our desires and actions toward God.
We know we shouldn’t be disloyal and we shouldn’t give into our sinful desires, but we do. And
while James addresses this disloyalty, he thankfully provides us with a wonderful explanation of
the gospel and the forgiveness we can enjoy.
