Today’s culture is all about avoiding pain at all costs and seeking out and doing whatever makes you feel good.  The only way to find joy and happiness is to seek pleasure now.  Phrases like “You only live once” or “Fear of Missing Out” are mantras in our culture.  Instead, as Pastor John explains today, this kind of pursuit of pleasure and happiness is in fact leading you farther from God, and thus farther from true joy.  You’ll never find the comfort and pleasure you desire until you find Jesus. Now, let’s join Pastor John in the book of James chapter 4 as he begins his message Conflict: It’s Cause and Cure.

Scripture
James 4:1 - 10

4:1 Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”? 6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble. 7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
