A Sermon by Bro. James Garbutt, Elder at Sovereign Grace Church

[part of introduction missing]
I. PREPARATION BEFORE THE SERMON
James 1:21a Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness
**CLEANSE YOUR HEART
Not just outward, but inward cleansing of thoughts, acts, life, habitual sins
I Samuel 16:7; Rev 5:11-14; Rom 8:13-17
“Lay aside” = “throw and go”
This is a COMMAND to “Do” . . .
Antithesis of this command is a WARNING “If you don’t” . . .

II. PREPARATION DURING THE SERMON
James 1:21b and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
**RECEIVE HIS WORD
Humility = “teachable”
Hosea 12:10
To gain a harvest you must break of unplowed ground

III. PREPARATION AFTER THE SERMON
James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
**DO WHAT GOD SAYS
Far better than just ‘hearing’ the Word and being self-deceived into thinking we’re okay
How as the sermon? Preaching might be over, but the doing has just begun
