Practical Christianity: The Most Dangerous Church Member

Practical Christianity: The Most Dangerous Church Member Sermon Audio Here


James 3:1-12

Rabies, the viral disease, is treatable if caught BEFORE symptoms show; once symptomatic, the disease is almost always fatal. Once that virus takes hold in the flesh, drastic measures are needed.

Those Fixed On The Flesh

Ignore A Shortage of Self-Control
James 3:1-5

  • v1 judged BY GOD (remember last week- we don’t judge)
  • v2 we’re all in this together – there are many ways of stumbling
  • v3/4 control is the issue; who’s really in control?
  • v5 small things can get out of control quickly

Believe Personal Superiority Is Sufficient
James 3:6-12

  • v6 “course of life”=wheel of nature; left unchecked, can throw your whole world off course
  • v7/8 man tames animals because of superiority; who is superior to man?
  • v9/10 what do WE do with speech?
  • v11/12 “flow” – GUSH, under pressure. What comes out of you when you’re under pressure?
  •      SALT – Dead Sea spring – is your water dead, or Living Water?

When we fill our lives with the Living Water, what comes out of us is life-filled. Our speech becomes the means that others are refreshed, and drawn to God at work in us.
