(KJV.) JAMES 1:19-21
(19) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
(20) For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
(21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
CALMNESS OF SPIRITS
Brethren, as men and women of faith; let our spoken words be few, full of wisdom and grace, when we speak too many words, at times, we miss crucial points of discussions, become sounding brass to the hearers, who need to assimilate wisdom from our utterances: it is better to cultivate the habits of listening patiently to speakers, hear their points of views first, before we speak, never interrupt other speakers, or speak arrogantly with vexations of spirits, regardless of our perceptions; rather, let us come together with the agape love of Jesus Christ, commune on issues pertaining to our faith, to move the body of Christ forward, among world of darkness.
Momentarily, the Holy Spirit might take control of believers, to prophesy, preach, teach his words to congregations; during those times, no one can interrupt his oracles; therefore, we have to relate his words truthfully, as they flow into our spirits from the throne of grace; when not being used by the Holy Spirit, but among other people, let us cultivate the habits of quietness, listen carefully to connotations, think wisely, understand points of views first, before we speak out words of wisdom into their hearts, never judge others quickly, but leave all judgements to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Rather, let us love, encourage, with kindness towards one another, spread the gospel of truth to all nations of the world, shine as lights among darkness, in everything, glorify Jesus Christ forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
