Who’s got your tongue?

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: James 3:1-12

Key Verse: Luke 6:45 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

James challenges us as to the danger of sins of speech and calls us to an on-going repentance and seeking God’s grace to move towards godly speech. He details the danger and power of the tongue but also how our words are actually a window to our hearts. The root issue is an issue of the heart – an issue only the Gospel can help us with.

The wise and foolish builders

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: Matthew 7:15-29

Key Verse: Matthew 7:24 Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. (NIVUK)

Jesus gives the warning that people must not only hear but also accept and act upon His teachings if they are to receive the gift of eternal life and be saved from eternal damnation.

The immediate context in Jesus teaching is His warning that there are people who outwardly look the same as Christians, and sincerely believe themselves to be Christians, without actually being Christians. On the day of judgement they will pled they religious activities as evidence of their Christianity, yet they will be banished from His presence because they trusted in their “Christian” activities rather than trusting in Jesus’ actions and His promises.

In the light of this danger of false Christianity and false hope, Jesus uses the parable of wise and foolish builders to make plain how get our response to His teachings about Himself has eternal consequences.

Then later Paul, writing to the church at Corinth, warns the believers to not only build on the correct foundation, but when building to use quality building material, such as gold and precious stones rather than wood, hay and stubble.Then later Paul, writing to the church at Corinth, warns the believers to not only build on the correct foundation, but when building to use quality building material, such as gold and precious stones rather than wood, hay and stubble.
