					           ―Where the Rubber Meets the Road – The Power of the Tongue‖
                                 Sermon Notes

James 1:19-20, 26; 3:8-10

James says the tongue simply reflects what is on the inside. The tongue has no brain to make its
own decision. It is totally controlled by what is on the inside – in the heart and mind of the
person. The question is: how do we get them in line so we can be a faithful witness?

We let God into our hearts and minds; we tell God to take the reins. God then controls the bit
which controls the 1,200 pound thundering horse. We pause before we speak and ask God to get
control of our heart and mind. When anger has stirred up the sludge in the bottom of our heart we
stop and allow it to settle so God’s work in us will have an opportunity to influence our words.
Once that happens our words become powerful tools of creation in God’s hands.

Try this experiment:
One day this week ask God to direct every word you say. Be aware of and deliberate about your
words, every one of them from the moment you get up to the moment you go to bed. At the end
of the day review them with God. If a day is too much, try the experiment with one hour. If you
are daring, expand this experiment to more days, maybe even a week.

Prayer
May I hear through your ears and see through your eyes.
And may the mind be in me that was in Jesus Christ.
Help me remember the power of my words.
Control my tongue so that I may be a faithful witness to you. Amen.
