The Spotlight on Your Words
James is concerned with the sanctification of Christians, for them to become more like Jesus. He wants the teaching of the bible to shine a light on every area of their lives, exposing problems so they can be put right. In this passage the light is shone very directly on our use of words, spoken and unspoken. James wants us to understand their importance in our lives and how they show the state of our hearts. The Christians reaction to this? Repentance, prayerful reliance on God to help us put it right, and action to play our part.
