In James 4:4-6 James accuses the hearers of Spiritual adultery, by following the idols of their heart. According to this passage, we are chasing after the things outside our covenant relationship with God. The danger is friendship with the world. This is putting things that are temporary before that which is eternal. Jesus says in Matthew 6:24 :”No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” According to this we see that idols of the heart break our fellowship with God. James seems to be saying with this passage, “You are living proof of the truthfulness of Scripture, which clearly teaches that the natural man has a spirit of envy Here we see that those who are in a permanent state of spiritual conflict with God, not only are His enemies, but also reflect that hostility by not trusting or obeying His Word. It is impossible to hold Scripture in genuine high regard as God’s own Word and yet not trust Jesus Christ for salvation and life. He concludes in verse by reminding us that Grace given is to be grace extended. Perfection is not a possibility in our lives, but maturity is a goal to strive for. May we learn to control our hearts, and seek to desire God.
