Blacktop Talk (James 1:17-27)

Rene' Lawson, September 2, 2018
Part of the Sunday Sermons series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Remember when we were young as children? At school, many of us played on blacktops or in school yards. There we learned school-yard antics – name calling, bullying, acting up, throwing a fit, etc. As we matured we learned that such behavior was unacceptable, cruel, and unfair. Christians believe that such maturity starts with the church and its teachings. In today’s world of “blacktop talk,” the church needs to revisit this subject matter and get back to what God expects of us.

James 1:17-27

17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. 19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. 27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. (KJV)
