Kitchen Table Devotional

James

Day 12

If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not  bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.                          James 1:26

This life in Jesus comes with the power to praise Him.  Worthless worship is weak worship, and it comes from a deceived heart.  This life comes with the power to praise the Giver of life with our own tongue.  Worthless religion or worship proceeds from a deceived heart that speaks lies, saying the right words and doing the right things (it thinks) but missing the right life.  Worthless worship lives for appearance but not authority.  Worthless worship springs from a deceived heart that has neglected and rejected the reflection of God’s word in its own life.  The truth is that this life comes with the power to praise from a pure heart and there is nothing worthless about that.
