God’s Truth for Trying Times - 8/20/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: James 3:1

Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. [James 3:1 ESV] 


CONSIDER: Here is the warning to any and all who would presume to teach God's Word: There is a stricter and higher accountability and responsibility attached to the lives and ministries of those who teach God's people.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
