Deep down, we all long to be described with words that are good, and unique; words that are not use very frequently. And if the word is not applied directly to us, we would like it when it is used to described what we do, or what we have. James 1:16-18 is like that. It uses unique words, words that are not used in any other part of the New Testament… but they are not applied to us! James uses them to described God, how He is. James says God is

  1. Father
  2. Creator
  3. Unchangeable

And then, he switches his focus, and says things about us: by God’s will (the same God he just described), He has made us alive, and holy unto Him.

Isn’t that amazing?!
