Summary: This Sermon speaks of the vast power that that small vessel the tongue has over us, along with the help of satan!
Are You Taming the Beast?
it seems that in the past several months or even
the past year of so that, the news media has
really had a hey day with the catholic churches
and the Episcopalian Churches.
The news has had them in the spotlight,
It’s their Job to spread the daily gossip, AMEN
But I’m sure that’s a very un-comfortable position!
The Episcopalian Church has been in much
controversy about the homosexual bishop
and it seems that every time you turn on the news’
there’s another priest from the Catholic church
that has been splattered on the news, in the sex crimes!
My heart really breaks in two, not because I
condone what’s going on
but because the eyes of the world are on the church
and you can just imagine what the people are
saying, like, I told you that church is nothing
but a bunch of hypocrites.They’re all goin to hell!!
Or Who would want to be a Christian with
what’s going on?
If these people are gonna go to heaven
then I’ll be right there with them!!!
But you want me to tell you what’s more scarey
People we don’t need to look at the Catholic’s
or the Episcopalian’s to find Hypocrites!!!
We can look right in our local churches
right under our noses, in our local towns!!
And our local communities.
There’s a force that’s breaking down the walls that
we’ve built with God!
and that force is called SATAN!
But you know he’s just doing his job!
Because He knows that time here on earth is short
and he’s gotta make everyone fall that he can!!
And another problem that, not just your local
church that you attend is having
or the one that I attend is having
but it’s a problem that all churches have,
and this little thing is called the tongue!!
Are You Taming The Beast???
Don’t you ever doubt for even a minute that
our tongue’s - your’s and mine
pose a threat to the kingdom of God, cause they do!!
just as powerful as any other problem
you hear of, on the news today!!!
We Christians are just as bad as sinners when it
comes to controlling our tongue’s!
It seems like across the country and around the world
church members are no doubt some of the best
No doubt church members are some of the
cruelest and meanest people around in our towns!!!
Let me ask you a question,
If you saw people talk like some do in the church
would you want to be a part of us Christians??
if you were a sinner and saw how people that’s
so-called Christians acted toward one another
and talked about their pastors and fellow church
members, would you want to be one of us???
People the time has come for us to stop running
our mouths about our brothers and sisters
The bible says
speak evil of no-one!!!
Listen to me tonight Church
we have made a hobby out of talking about
our brothers and sisters in Christ!!
If we are gonna stay in the will of God
its about time that we learn how to bridle up
and learn how to control our tongues!! AMEN
The trouble that can be done of us running our
tongue is absolutely astronomical!!
With our tongues we can BUILD UP
OR WE CAN TEAR DOWN!!
with my tongue I can lead people to the Lord
or with my tongue I can run people away
from the Lord!!!
We’re supposed to tame this beast!
And if we can’t tame this beast we’re gonna
find ourselves in the depths of hell
with that terrible one called the devil!
Here in the book of James we see that there’s
three truthful things that our tongue can cause
the first is our tongue is the smallest organ of our body but it’s the most powerful!!
The author of James begins chapter 3 telling us of
the power of our tongue’s!
He tells us that if you could find someone
whose speech is perfect and true, or in other words
if you could find someone who could control their tongue’s at all times or who never said anything wrong
then you’d have a perfect person
in perfect control of their life!!! AMEN
I don’t know about ya’ll but some of the biggest
mistakes I make in this life is I let my mouth
override my brain!
Sometimes I say words that I shouldn’t say or
there are some that I should say but I don’t!!
Moreso shouldn’t rather than should!!
Probably 99% of the trouble I find myself in
in the church, in life, in my family, or my job
is this little body organ right here!!!
