THE MESSAGE


THE WORDS WE SPEAK :IT IS A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH
***********************************************


1. YOUR WORDS DETERMINE YOUR DESTINY

The words we speak is a matter of life and death . We can experience blessings in our life by the words that we speak. but we can also experience destruction in our lives if we speak words that cause destruction. We can control our whole life if we control our tongue. like a rudder which can steer a big ship , our words can determine the direction of our lives. We have to give an account before god on the day of judgement for every careless word that we speak. Therefore we must be very careful over every word that we speak . We must have a good heart and speak good words out of the overflow of the good treasure of our heart.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES
********************


PROVERBS 18:21

" The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit."


MATTHEW 12:34-37

" You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.

But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.

For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned."


PROVERBS 6:2

" You are snared by the words of your mouth; You are taken by the words of your mouth."


JAMES 3:1-10

" Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.

We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check.

When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal.

Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go.

Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.

The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man,

but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in Godís likeness.

Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be."
