ThornCreek Church
Reset // My Words
It’s finally 2021! As we look forward to a new year, we have the opportunity to take stock of what is important and RESET our outlook, our goals, and our lives. God desires to be at the center of your life this new year. In this series we will look at the letter from James to learn how we can approach this new year with a renewed dedication to living a godly life. No matter what your 2020 looked like, God has new grace and hope for you this year!

ThornCreek Kids Ministry strives to walk alongside and equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their children’s lives. Our hope and prayer is that with a strong faith foundation, kids will make the decision to continue growing as Christians, and become Christ-like disciples.

Our age-level classes allow us to reach children at their developmental level, so that by God’s grace they will be able to comprehend to the best of their ability, the topics we are covering in church!

All Ministry Partners (over the age of 18) have passed background checks, and all Bridge Team members (6th-12th graders) are supervised by adults.

Have you ever said something that you wished you didn't say?
We learn how to talk from those around us.
VERSE 1 - Judged ______________
VERSE 2 - Perfect ______________
James is saying…
Someone who controls their tongue is spiritually mature!
If your mouth got you into trouble, use your mouth to get you out of trouble.
If you have to say what’s on your mind because you’re keeping it real. Then keep it real when you’re wrong also and ask for forgiveness.
"Sometimes it's the words we choose not to say that speak most loudly about our character."
- Lysa TerKeurst
Have you noticed anger and talking go together?
There are three (3) types of people in this world
So the BIG QUESTION is, what's in your HEART?
When you say something, that you know you shouldn't have said, ask God this question:
Why did I say that?
"The fruit of our lips finds its source in the root of our soul."
- Anonymous
Social Media...
Think before you post.
"What you post online as a follower of Jesus tells those reading it something about God, good or bad."
- Jeffery Curtis Poor
VERSES 3-5 - Small ______________
"We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out."
- Winston Churchill
VERSES 9-10 - Inconsistency ______________
VERSES 11-12 - Water ______________
"The tongue is contained in a cage of teeth and lips, but it still escapes. It is not intelligence that keeps the lock on that cage; it is wisdom - a wisdom that is characterized by humility, grace, and peace."
- J. Ronald Blue
