Bring Sinners Back
James 5:19-20 / Pastor David VanAcker
My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, 20 let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
In our passage for this morning, James gives us one final, specific God-honoring way to love and encourage one another in Jesus: bringing each other back from sin. This is rarely easy or popular, but James (along with the rest of the Bible) makes plain that it is good and right. My main hope and prayer is that God would use this sermon to do three things: 1) Convince you of, or further solidify in your mind, the biblical basis for confronting sin in one another, 2) Help you to do so in a gracious manner, and 3) Help you to receive that kind of correction in a gracious manner. Let's pray for God's help in all of that and whatever else He has for us.
