Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (Proverbs 18:21) The words that we speak once spoken we can never take them back! It is vital that we guard our mouths from speaking evil.
Are you on the road to stay in Christ or living in Crisis mode?
A group of ministers were discussing the spiritual conditions of our nation. In a recent survey that defined a Christian as being one who believes that the only way to heaven is through Jesus, only 6% agreed. One minister said only a total economic collapse would cause Americans to repent. This pervasive belief is often expressed by evangelicals of every stripe. If it’s true, would Christians just blame the calamity on non-believers? Just maybe the real problem is the believers themselves. Perhaps we’re Hung by the Tongue. Can a nation really come to God without calamity bringing it to it’s knees? It has happened before.
Our words reveal what we believe. “Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, 14 knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. 15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:13-15 ESV
