Practical Christianity:

Don’t say it unless
you really mean it

For those becoming more pure in heart, how they live …

…how they live starts to line up more and more with what they claim to believe.

Being double-minded is the opposite of being pure in heart or single-minded!

If you are pure in heart, when you hear the word, you do what it says.

JAM 1:26-27

Deception is the opposite of purity.

Religion here means the practical living out of what you claim to believe.

You may think you are living the Christian way of life, but -

if you cannot control your tongue, then you are not going to get very far with that.

COL 3:8-10

The old man has a wicked TONGUE!

The breakthrough truth, for us in Christ, is the role of the Spirit in enabling us to do this!

ROM 8:12-13
GAL 5:16-24

But Jesus, James, and Paul are in COMPLETE AGREEMENT about what the GOAL is!

Loving the Lord with all our mind, heart, soul and strength.

Loving one another as Christ has loved us.

Visiting orphans and widows in their distress.

Living righteously, unstained by the world.

And controlling our tongues!!!

We all need to be provoked from time to time so we don’t think more highly of ourselves than we ought to think.
