We live in a world where many (including those who call themselves Christians) allow enmities to develop between them. James reminds us that we can become enemies of God by our friendship with the world. Pray that as God’s people we will not become hostile with God or each other, but that we would walk in the depths of his love.
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. James 4:4
