What Am I Saying | Part 2

What Am I Saying | Part 2

Our speech reveals a great deal about who we are. James has such challenging teaching about the use of our tongue! The Bible is clear that only a renewed heart (personal renewal) can produce pure speech. Since the tongue is so difficult to control those who control it can gain control of themselves in all other areas of life as well.

We have a quest through this series to create the best discipleship community that we can. How we speak to and about others is at the heart of our discipleship. The objective is to set standards of conduct in our speech, and raise you to attain them.

  4. Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could

    control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way. James 3:2–6 (NLT)
  5. We can make a large horse go wherever we want

    by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself. James 3:2–6 (NLT)
