Words Of Mouth

What if as you speak, the words appear on your skin? Would you look beautiful or ugly?A popular Bible verse says ” Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks”. This means that the words we speak matters a lot because they show exactly what we think about. In Matthew 15:17-18, Jesus said :
17 Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’
The text above tells us about the gravity of our words. Our words could make us sin, I believe we all know this. It could be a little white lie, or even what we say while joking. When someone provokes you, how do you react? Do you give in to the devil and then rain insults on the person? Of course, we get angry but we also have the power to control our tongue. James chapter 3 tells us a lot about the tongue. The tongue is compared to the rudder of a ship, and we are told that the tongue is a very important part of our bodies.
Proverbs 18:21 says
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
This is so true. We have the power to make positive confessions and also negative ones.
As believers, we are supposed to be different in everything that we do. Our actions and inactions, our speech also should be clean and not vulgar. We are told in Matthew 5:14 that we are the light of the world. Verse 16 of the same chapter instructs us to let our lights shine before men, that they may see our good deeds and praise our Father in heaven. Let our words be those of impact. Not just idle words. Kind words could be good deeds also. We could hurt others by the words we speak, I pray that we all learn how to bridle our tongues.
Do this little exercise: Close your eyes and reflect on all what you have said in the past twenty four hours. Are they words that are meaningless or words that are meaningful ? Are they curses or blessings? Are they vain words or words that glorify God?
If incase, any of your previous words fall in the former category, try as much as possible to avoid such words and also apologize to anyone you hurt in the past with your words. When you’re angry and you don’t have any kind words, just keep quiet. Trust me, you would not regret it. And if your previous words fall in the latter category, keep it up. You also wouldn’t regret it.
So let us try to always make positive confessions. May God bless us all abundantly, Amen. Thank you for reading this article. Kindly share with others. Also follow my instagram page @naijachristianteen Thanks 😊

18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The text above is from the book of Matthew, chapter 28. Jesus Christ gave all believers an order to spread the gospel. That’s what I’m trying to do. I am on mission to reach out to everyone including teenagers because I’m a teenager myself.
