God’s Truth for Trying Times - 8/3/21


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 1:21

Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. [James 1:21 ESV]


CONSIDER: God's word is able to save our souls. The Spirit of God uses the word of God in the lives of the people of God for the glory of God. We are to eliminate from our lives anything that is sinful and bad and works against God's will.


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?
