James Part 3 - The Sin of Partiality

September 25, 2022 Preacher: Trent Henderson Series: James

Scripture: James 2:1–13

James 2:1-8


Partiality - playing favorites, preferential treatment, "lift the face of ..."

  • Partiality is judgment based on faulty premises
  • Partiality hinders us from seeing what is true about someone

James 2:9-11


Faith falters in partiality

  • I do not recognize the image of God in the other person
  • I do not recognize their need for God and His salvation
  • I do not recognize what is revealed about my own heart

We sin in partiality

  • Two ways to sin: capitulate or callousness

Breaking some of the law is being guilty of all of it

James 2:12-13


Live in the law of liberty

  • Remember you will be judged - accountability is a powerful motivator
  • Better than bondage
  • Doorways of ministry will open
  • Mercy triumphs (sees them genuinely and deals with them accordingly)
