Saving the Soul – James 5:13-20
The call to come out from behind the closed doors of our sin is a call to community and accountability. When we are wounded, we must be ready for God to use the believers he has placed around us as part of our healing. God will deliver the saving power of his Gospel to us through people.
A natural reaction we have to our sin is to hide it, to deny it, and to avoid dealing with it. For this reason we keep our sins “behind closed doors” in silence, in darkness, separate from the healing God and our community of believers can bring us.
