If you were given one wish, for what would you ask? A lot of money? Fame? A long life?

 

I heard about a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary. They were both about 50 years old.  As they strolled along the beach, the husband accidentally kicked over a bottle hidden in the sand.  A genie emerged. “You can each have one wish,” she said.

 

The wife made her wish first. “I would like a luxurious trip around the world with my husband.” Suddenly there appeared in her hand two tickets for just such an adventure.

 

Now it was the husbands turn. “Well,” said the husband, with a mischievous look on his face, “I wish my wife were 25 years younger than I am.” The words were barely out of his mouth when, poof, he became 75 years old!

 

The reality is that, if you lack wisdom, even wishes that come true can become curses. Above all else we need wisdom! If you’re going to “make a wish,” wish for wisdom! Pray rightly for it and God will grant it!

 

This Sunday at Istrouma we will focus on James 3:13-18 and what God says there about wisdom. Be sure to join us!  It’ll be better for you than a trip around the world!

 

James: Practical Spirituality

“Wish for Wisdom!”   

James 3:13-18

 

  1. Different origins of wisdom

 

This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic (3:15)

 

  1. There’s a wisdom from heaven

 

  1. There’s a wisdom from hell

 

 

  1. Different operations of wisdom

 

For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere (3:16-17).

 

  1. There’s a wisdom that is selfish

 

  1. There’s a wisdom that is spiritual

 

 

  1. Different outcomes of wisdom

 

And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace (3:18).

 

  1. There’s a wisdom that produces rebellion
  2. There’s a wisdom that produces righteousness

“Stick out your tongue.”

 

That’s the typical instruction you get when you go for a doctor’s visit, right?  Have you ever wondered why? It’s because your tongue tells a lot about you. From anemia, to autoimmune diseases, to allergies, to vitamin deficiencies, to hygiene, to hydration, the tongue can be a good indicator of your physical health.

               

Did you know that your tongue can also be a good indicator of your spiritual health?  The words that we say (or fail to say) are a telltale sign of the condition of our hearts. Jesus knew this full well. Listen to what he said in Luke 6:45, especially the final phrase, “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”  Our tongue is a window through which we can see the health of our heart.

               

This coming Sunday morning we’ll allow the Great Physician to take a good, long, hard look at our tongues—at the words we speak and the heart that prompts them. We’ll be in James 3:1-12 for a message entitled, “Tame the Tongue.” Be sure to join us!

 

James: Practical Spirituality

“Tame the Tongue!”   

James 3:1-12

 

  1. The paradox of the tongue

 

So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!  (3:5)

 

  1. It is small

 

  1. It is strong

 

 

  1. The potential of the tongue

 

With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God (3:9).

 

  1. It can help

 

  1. It can harm

 

 

  1. The problem of the tongue

 

But no human being can tame the tongue (3:8a).

 

  1. James states the problem
  2. Jesus solves the problem

!Controlando la lengua!

 

"A ver... saque la lengua, por favor...."
Es lo primero que dice el doctor cuando llegamos a su consultorio.
Es porque en nuestra lengua dice mucho de nosotros! Es un indicador de nuestra salud, enfermedades, deficiencias vitamínicas, higiene, hidratación, etc. Pero, ¿sabes que la lengua también puede ser un indicador de nuestra salud espiritual? Las palabras que decimos y aún las que no decimos revelan lo que hay en nuestro corazón (Lucas 6.45 "... de la abundancia del corazón, habla la boca") Este domingo no se pierda este tema de la serie "Espiritualidad Practica" desde el libro de Santiago en la Biblia.

Quien esta en el control?

 

El Apóstol Pablo desde la cárcel, motiva a sus lectores alegrarse. ¿No es esto contradictorio? como alguien inocente y privado de su libertad. Nos anima a estar contentos.
¿Dónde encontró Pablo la fuerza para hacerlo?
Lo sabremos este domingo, 9:15am.
Todos invitados!!!
