Recusant (James 4:7-10)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “recusant.” One of the main themes of the Bible is submission. When people make a decision to follow Jesus as the Messiah, what they're really saying is that they are willing to submit their lives to the Savior and follow his commands. This is a pretty tough change for a lot of people because we are so used to keeping our loyalty to ourselves. It goes against everything that we feel and believe should occur in human nature. But this is exactly what Jesus asks us to do.

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
~Jm. 4:7

My question is: how are you when it comes to following Jesus and denying yourself? The word tells us that we must be humble income before the one who changed our lives. My prayer is that each of us never becomes a recusant, or one who refuses to submit, in our dealings with God. As you yourself been the site of the Lord, others will see your actions and respond to God favorably because of your actions.

Praying for you,
