Am I Showing Partiality?
It’s easy to do.
Imagine that a wealthy or famous person visits your small group. How would you feel about them visiting? Would you go out of your way to meet them? Would you make sure they were introduced to others?
But then imagine that a poor, homeless person visited your group. How would you feel about them visiting? Would you respond to them in the same way?
Here’s an 11-minute video message on James 2:1-7 which was given while Grace Church met in homes as we waited for approval to return to our central meeting place.
In this video I show what the sin of partiality involves, and the three reasons James gives to help us overcome it.
May God use His word to overcome the sin of partiality, so His glory will shine from the unity and love we have in Christ.
