Discussion Questions

July 25, 2021


  • Which of the illustrations James uses in these verses particularly stand out to you? Why?
  • Why is it more common for tongues to lead our lives than for our lives to control ourselves?
  • How have you been hurt or wounded by the words of others?
  • How have you been built up by words of others?
  • How have your words been similar to a flame lighting a forest fire?
  • How has your tongue stained your own life?
  • How has your tongue stained the name of Christ and his Church?
  • How has your tongue revealed a need for your heart to be transformed?
  • In the sermon, we heard that while a double-minded tongue reveals an untransformed heart, God uses real faith to transform the tongue by replacing its master, taming its power, and transforming its source.
  • How have you seen this process in your life and in the lives of others?
Family Discipleship

Have each person read one or more of these Scriptures aloud: Prov. 12:13; 16:27-28; 18:7; 18:21; 27:6; Isa 52:7; Mt 12:36-37; 15:18; Rom 3:13; 1 Th 5:11.

After each verse that is read, discuss these questions:
  • What does this verse tell us about the power, effects, and source of our words?
  • Are their warnings, promises, and/or blessings in this verse?
  • What might we know about the condition of the heart of the person about whom the verse speaks?
  • How can each of us seek transformation of our tongues?
  • From whom do you need to seek forgiveness because of things you have said?
  • What is a small step of faith you could take towards seeking transformation of your tongue?


"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42


Fellowship isn't just something we do on Sunday mornings. It's gathering together in various groups to discuss Scripture, enjoy each others' company, support each other, share meals, and pray with and for one another. And while we do these things in many ways in our whole-church Sunday gatherings, meeting together through the week in smaller groups allows us to do this in a more intimate setting, allowing us to grow deeper in our relationships with each other and with God.

If you would like to know more about the small groups, please feel free to contact the leaders directly, or you can talk to a pastor or elder, a person who attends a group, or someone in the office.
