The sovereignty of God

Or: God, our ultimate superhero

This is a sermon I preached at St Aldhelm’s Doulting, focusing on James 4:11-17.

Superheroes are everywhere in today’s culture. In some ways we’re a bit like them, in that we often judge each other, comparing our own skills and achievements against other people. James points out that this is contrary to God’s will. We judge God too, every time we go our own way instead of his.

James teaches us that the solution to our problem of pride is humility. We need to humbly submit to each other, and to God.
