Bible Text: James 1:19-21 | Pastor Keith Bergstrom
Series: James: The How-To of Discipleship
God wants us to accept the word (the Bible) planted in our life. We accept God’s word by 1.) listening, by 2.) restraining our speech and allowing God to speak to us, and by 3.) restraining our anger. Anger will close and cloud your mind to God’s truths. In addition, take decisive action against the “weeds” that try to crowd out God’s word.
When we humbly accept God’s word, planted in our life, we are transformed, A transformed person has a new outlook on life, a new orientation, new priorities. Everything looks different, even if it stays the same.
