Proverbs 18:21“Death and life are in the power of the tongue,And those who love it will eat its fruit.”
The Bible is about Life and Death.From beginning to end God speaks about the blessings of obedience, and the curses of disobedience. The impact of Good and Evil upon Life and Death is the story of our walk with God.Words can mean physical life or death!By the power of a few wise words, Solomon ascertained the true identity of the baby’s mother and returned the child to her alive.By the power of a few lying words, Ananias and Sapphira condemned themselves to death at the hands of the Holy Spirit.Words can mean eternal life or death.By your words you will be justified or condemned. It is your words that expose the content of your heart before God.Jesus repeats your confession of his name on earth before the Father in heaven.He also repeats your denial of his name on earth before the Father in heaven.The words of our prayers bring wisdom, healing, comfort, justice and salvation.Despite popular opinion, everybody enjoys the sound of their own voice – whether our words be many or few. In fact, we love it. God gave us the gift of communication, and it is important that the Christian use it to the glory of God as much as possible. So, its not how much you talk. It’s the quality of your words and the acceptance that you are responsible for them. Life and death are in them. Be a source of life—speak a good word for Jesus.John StaigerIf you have been blessed by this message, please feel free to: Like, Comment or Share it with your friends.
