Study # 31
April 8, 1998
Harlingen, Texas

Thesis: The believer's responsibility is to lay aside his pursuit of glory and respond to the Word by embracing it as the inner-energizing Word that puts the soul at rest. Introduction: In our last study we considered James' requirement that we put aside our commitment to get even because the righteousness of God cannot arise out of that kind of motivation. This evening we are going to look into the alternative. There is a root to the search for vengence. In order for the believer to possess the tranquility of soul that makes life joyful, he must deal with that root. So, this evening we want to look into the exhortation to deal with the root.
