POWER OF THE TONGUE
Did you know that there is a lot of power in our tongue.
Power to help or power to destroy.
The "Good Book" [The Holy Bible] tells us:
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue,"
(Proverbs 18:21 NASB)
The problem is that by our natural nature the tongue
"And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity;
the tongue is set among our members as that which
defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of
our life, and is set on fire by hell."
(James 3:6 NASB)
In the natural state our tongue is set on fire by the very
forces of hell it's self. That is why we need to turn our
life over to God and invite Jesus Christ to come in and
take control giving us a new nature. THEN, or tongue
can be a tongue of:
"But the tongue of the wise brings healing."
"The tongue of the wise makes knowledge
"A soothing tongue is a tree of life."
(Proverbs 12:18, 15:2, 4 NASB)
