Today in our lesson, James ... [cached]

Today in our lesson, James affirms the power of our tongues with a warning: be careful little tongue what you say.

Over the last several weeks, we have been looking at this study of James, which I have titled: Practical Christianity. And really, that is the thrust of what James teaches. He writes about how we should live out our faith in Christ.
Our relationship with God is the most important relationship we could ever have. James teaches us how to make or how to put God first in our life. If God is going to be first, we need to learn how to tame our tongues.
In the opening verse of our lesson, James warns that not everyone should teach. Those who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
James is very practical in his approach to teaching and in our lesson today James gives several illustrations about how powerful our tongues can be.
Growing up, a lot of my friends were farmers, some of them had horses so I had the opportunity to ride. And if you have ever ridden a horse, you know what James is saying when he writes about bridles.
James writes that the tongue controls the direction of our lives. A word, a phrase can have considerable influence.
Consider James suggests, the rudder of a ship.
It directs where we go, and so James teaches us that as followers of Christ, we need to learn how to control our tongues.
James gives another illustration.
James writes in verse 6 of our reading, the tongue is a fire.
James is saying the same about our tongues.
But we also know, and as James warns, the tongue can be a restless evil full of deadly poison. The tongue can tear down and be full of lies and deceit. It can discourage and wreak havoc. The tongue can be out of control.
With it, James writes, we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we also curse those who are made in God's likeness.
You see, as James has been doing, and as he encourages throughout his letter, James wants to encourage us as followers of Christ. He does so because as followers of Christ, we are Christ's ambassadors to the rest of the world. What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of who we are on the inside.
If Jesus is Lord of our lives it should be reflected in what we say and how we live out our faith. James is asking us to make up our own minds. Is Jesus Lord or not?
From the same mouth he writes, blessing and cursing. It contradicts who we say we are.
So as is James' style - he illustrates what he is trying to say.
The warning from James is not to quiet the tongue. James urges that we tame the tongue and use it to God's glory.
I'm not here to beat up the church and make it feel bad for not fulfilling it's mission. And nor do I believe that is the purpose of James writing this letter. The Holy Spirit may convict us with these words of James, but each day is a new opportunity to live by the Grace of God and live out our Faith.
An ancient legend recounts the return of Jesus to glory after his time on earth. Even in heaven he bore the marks of his earthly pilgrimage with the cross and shame of death.
And Jesus responded, I have asked Peter, James, John, and a few more friends to tell others about me.
