Sunday's Message:

The Dragon's Breath!

Are You Ready for the Word?

The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:16-24) & The Tongue is a Fire (James 3:1-12)

Good morning, GRACE Mountain Chapel!  Back in the first chapter of James’ epistle – he gave us a sneak peek at what’s coming like a theological tornado this morning!  James 1:19 “This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger...” & James 1:26 “If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.”  This morning’s message is called “The Dragon’s Breath” – covering 12 verses the NASB calls “The Tongue is a Fire!”

What began years ago at Berkeley – what we know as the “Free Speech Movement” – is now attached at the hip to “Freedom of the Press” – & has without a doubt become the sacred cow of our modern era.  But this morning James is going to address what was – in his time - & what is STILL in our time – the most dangerous weapon in the world!  A seminary professor once put it like this: “It was a miracle in Balaam’s day for an ass to speak...but today it is a miracle when he keeps quiet!”  Hold on tight GMC - as we explore the theology of the tongue! 

Trail’s End:  The law was given by Moses – GRACE & TRUTH CAME through Jesus Christ!  The amazing GRACE of the New Covenant was purchased by the perfect, finished, atoning work of Jesus at the Cross - with His own precious redeeming blood.  Let’s receive ALL that He died to give us! 

“Brother Marc’s Nugget” (the Bible promise) for this week: James 3:2
