James -18 is a call to flee the lure of sin as well as a call to celebrate the new life we have in Christ.
While this episode focuses specifically on a wife discovering her husband’s secrets, we don’t want to perpetuate the myth that it is always the husband who is the perpetrator.
Please pass along the link to this page to any women in your life who might be experiencing the devastation of discovering their spouse’s sexual sin.
This episode seeks to provide a framework for dealing with a traumatic event that, unfortunately, the church doesn’t spend a lot of time talking about.
Thankfully, God graciously changes our natures so that we can withstand temptation. In James we see that in this age temptation is inevitable. We are tempted to shift blame for our temptation When we feel the pull towards sin and rebellion we are never allowed to shake our fist at God and say, "You made me this way". Temptation is tailored to our "own desire"Sin is attractive to us because we are not yet fully redeemed. Apart from Christ we aren't wise enough to see the poison of sin.
James is urging his readers to not give in to temptation because it inevitably leads to death. Truthfully, even if we did see the poison of sin we would still rebel.
