The Power of our Tameless Tongue

James 3:1-12                  May 8, 2016                  Link for audio/video/manuscript

The tongue not only has the power to direct and guide but also destroy because it is deceptively inconsistent, as the tongue also has the power to bless and to curse from the same mouth. Sin has twisted and polluted our speech, but God began his work of a new creation in us when we come to a living faith in Jesus Christ. Even though we still live in a world marred by sin, we can have victory over our tongues when we surrender our tongues to God for His use and yield the control of our tongues to the Holy Spirit – which will then empower us to use our tongues to bless God and to bless one another and to bless those who have yet to know Jesus!
