If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.
- Bridle your tongue.
Romans 3:23 (ESV)
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
James 5:16 (ESV)
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
- Confess your sins to one another
- Pray for one another
I Corinthians 13:1-3 (ESV)
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.
Let LOVE Fuel your:
- Desire to open up to people
I Samuel 16:7 (ESV)
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
Show them that what they believe religion to be IS worthless, but the relationship with the body of Christ and God is what fuels your love and passion for people!
