SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/12- “Blessing And Cursing Ought Not To Come From The Same Source And Same Place!” (James 3:10)
Premise Question: How can blessing and cursing come from the same source and place, and is this even possible; and why should we ever give any credence to or be tolerant of it, and finally, how and what can and should we do about confronting it?
“And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!” (James 3:10 NLT)
What is this that I’m hearing, coming from your mouths; both, expressions of appreciation, grateful homage, with high acclaim and devotion, as well as, expressions of profane obscenities that are blasphemous, filled with obloquial hurtful abusive language? My most beloved and cherished fellow members of The Company of The Redeemed, this should not be occurring, as it is completely unacceptable and incongruent behavior, that should never be a part of our common practice, as believers in Jesus Christ. (James 3:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Oh, but it all too often, unfortunately, ends up being reality and is the case! The reason why one can have both blessing and cursing, coming, seemingly, from the same source, is because there has been some kind of pollution spill at the place of the pure fountainhead source, the heart, and then, it flows out from there as no longer being pure, but polluted, convoluted and diluted by the essence of what is contained within the spewing, spouting, spilling of raw filthy sewage, emanating from a polluted heart; which then targets and delivers its vileness, to its intended recipients, with a poisonous and gushing tongue! Most often, it has a negative affect on more than just its intended victims, as there is always an overflow of this kind of expression!
We must not ever allow our pure source, our hearts, which have been cleansed and made pure by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, that was applied to our hearts, at the time of our salvation conversion experience, to once again become polluted with vile and sinful practices and behaviors, nor bitterness, resentment and a reluctance or reticence to us being unwilling to walk in release and extend forgiveness whenever and to whomever, as is needed and necessary.
We must always be cognizant and aware of our credibility and reputation, needing to be established and kept, as it is always going to be put on display for all to see; especially those that are still in darkness and needing to be set free. So, therefore, we must not ever act in a way that is unbecoming to a follower of Jesus Christ, but if and when we do, which some of us most certainly have done or will do, perhaps even yet again, we must choose to immediately, with humility, sue for peace, seek the mercy and forgiveness of Papa God and others, and then begin again, with the powerful and efficacious cleansing that comes as a result of our confession and repentance.
The issue of blessing and cursing coming from seemingly the same delivery source—our mouths, should never be tolerated and should always be confronted swiftly; by ourselves within ourselves, and also by those who are spiritual, and who will, in love, with a humble, gentle, merciful and kind spirit, and with the divine and intentional purpose of bringing restoration, healing and reconciliation, into the life of the one being held accountable.
Remember, dearly beloved brothers and sisters, The Holy Writ declares that: Out of the preponderance of what is contained in the abundance of the heart, the mouth is filled with it, and the tongue spews and vomits it out all over anyone that is close enough to be spilled all over, with its vileness.
But, if the source is kept pure and the mouth and tongue is under control and kept clean, then there is much blessing, encouragement and refreshing that shall gush forth and pour over anyone close by!
Each and every day, we have a choice, we can choose to either spread Papa God’s GRACE, or spray man’s MACE! GRACE is: God’s Redeeming Atonement Covers Everyone! MACE is: Misery, Antagonism, Criticism, Entangling!
When our hearts are free of debris, then it’s easy to spread Papa God’s GRACE! So, keep your heart free of debris, flush the flesh and stay refreshed, and you’ll be a refreshing and a wellspring of blessings to others, as well! Blessings…
