God’s Truth for Trying Times - 8/6/21


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 1:26

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless. [James 1:26 ESV]


CONSIDER: If someone says they are a Christian and a follower of Christ but does not guard their heart and tongue, desiring to please God in their life and their words, they are deceiving themselves and showing that they do not understand the gospel and do not know Christ.


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?
