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 Magnificent Seven

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: Acts 6:1-7
 
Key Verse: Acts 6:2-4
So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, ‘It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.’

 
The two groups of Greek Jews and Hebraic Jews had existed for a long time with the Hebraic Jews feeling superior to the Greek Jews. This attitude had unfortunately continued into the church with the Hebraic believers believing their widows should have priority.
To deal with the problem fairly need time and energy. Time and energy which the apostles did not have if they were also to fulfil their primary function of prayer and teaching. Therefore the church choose godly men who would give their time and energy to the social needs of the church. The apostles then delegated this function to the 7 men chosen commissioning them with the laying on of hands.
