17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

– James 3:17-18

Power of the Tongue

March 31, 2019

9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. 10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers,[a] these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and salt water? 12 Can a fig tree, my brothers, bear olives, or a grapevine produce figs? Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water.

– James 3:9-12

18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

– James 2:18

My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory.

– James 2:1

Hearers & Doers

Obedience: Hear the Word and do it
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
– James 1:22-25

Self-control: Tongue
26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.
– James 1:26

Generosity: Taking care of the widows and orphans
27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, …

Purity:
… and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
– James 1:27
