Faith Works: Taming the Tongue
Series: Faith Works
The average person spends about one-fifth of their life talking. In fact, if all of our spoken words were put into print, we would each fill a 50-page book in one day. Since we use words so often, it makes sense that god's Word would contain instructions about how to use them. The book of James tells us to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger. Our culture has flipped this principle around. We are all too quick to speak and voice our opinions.
 
In this message from the Faith Works series, Jace Williamson, FBCVA Student Pastor, looks at James 3:1-12 to show that our words are powerful, and they reveal our true self. If you can control your tongue, you can control yourself.

    God’s Grace for God’s Glory

    "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer.

    The apostle Paul sent Timothy to pastor the church in Ephesus. But this church was a mess, and Timothy had to deal with various problems from false teachers and false doctrines. Paul's first letter to Timothy is a charge to "hang in there." It is a letter that gives instructions on dealing with false doctrines and establishing faithful church leaders. The passage in 1 Timothy 1:12-17 is like a runway where Paul is preparing to launch into this instruction by reminding Timothy that he is thankful for personal grace and for universal grace. He completes the takeoff by praising the God of grace. When Paul thought of God, he knew Him as the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God.

    Listening & Hearing: Greatness Defined and Demonstrated
    When Jesus asks, "What do you want me to do for you?" how do you answer?  In Mark 10:35-52 we see two different responses. James and John wanted recognition and greatness.  The blind beggar simply wanted to see. In this message, FBCVA Student Pastor, Jace Williamson, presents two scenes: the classroom and the field test. In the classroom, Jesus defines greatness for James and John.  In the field test, Jesus demonstrates greatness by showing mercy to the blind beggar.
