James 1:26

"Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless."NIV

"If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain."KJV

Anyone can be religious. To be religious is to act out external religious behaviors and traditions. Those behaviors are totally worthless unless there is the internal living Spirit of God that keeps us in control of our sinful nature. Our speech is the most difficult thing for us to control. It can only be done with the help of God's Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, please forgive us if we have only acted religious on the outside. Give us willing hearts to open up to the indwelling of Your Holy Spirit so that we will live true spiritual lives. Help us to be aware that our speech is what will give us the most trouble our self-control. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
