Response to James Chapter 1 (Con't)

1:19. "Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath."

Swift to hear. Christians should have a positive response to scripture since it is the Word of God and we should eagerly pursue God's will in our lives.

Slow to speak. This is a reference to preaching the word. One should be cautious about deciding to become a preacher or a teacher of the Word too quickly. 1Timothy 3:6 Also has a similar caution. A Believer who is not adequately prepared for a life of ministry could easily become puffed up with pride and set himself up for a big fall. Also, if he does not diligently study the word of God he can easily be duped into false teaching. Becoming a preacher or teacher of the Word should not be a decision made in haste or in the spur of the moment, but should be one made after much prayer.

Slow to wrath. A preacher or teacher of the Word should not be short-tempered. The apostle Paul also speaks about this to young Timothy at 1 Timothy 3:3 and 1 Timothy 5:22.

"Some bring God's curse on them by marking off part of the Bible, calling it erroneous, uninspired, less than the very Word of God." - Dr. John R. Rice

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God to salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)
