VICTORY OVER THE TONGUE Pt.2



We are meditating on scriptural principles to control the words coming out of our mouths. Here are two additional principles:


Realize your words reflect on the Gospel:


As long as you believe your tongue is not important, you will not gain control of it. You must realize that your conversation reflects on the Gospel of Jesus:


Only let your conversation be as it becometh the Gospel of Christ... (Philippians 1:27)

Because of this, you should set a good example in your conversation:


Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. (1Timothy 4:12)


What comes out of your mouth is heard by the heathen:

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen,


The Lord hath done great things for them. (Psalms 126:2)

You can actually win others to the Lord Jesus Christ through your conversation:


Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. (1 Peter 3:1-2)


Think before you speak:

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear; slow to speak, slow to wrath. (James 1:19)


If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth. (Proverbs 30:32)


The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things. (Proverbs 15:28)


Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. (Proverbs 17:28)


PRAYER:

My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
