HELLO FROM THE TEMPLE …
“How Are You?”
Fine? Are you feeling rested after a good night’s sleep and ready to start a new day? How is your spiritual health? How is your tongue?
“Your speech reveals what kind of Christian you are. Your tongue is an indicator of your Christian spiritual health.” – Pastor V.S. Brice
“Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.” – James 3:10 (NIV)
Our tongues have more power than we realize. An unhealthy tongue has the power to cut down and destroy. An unhealthy tongue will affect your physical health as well as your emotional – mental – and spiritual health. Hateful words have a negative impact on your spiritual health.
“What comes out of your mouth determines your direction: life or destruction.” – Pastor V.S. Brice
“The tongue has the power of life and death.” – Proverbs 18:21 (NIV)
What starts in your mind will gravitate to your heart. What’s in your heart will roll off your tongue. Your mind, heart, and tongue all affect your spiritual health. We are dead to Christ when we sin. We must turn from sin and use our tongues to speak life into a situation – to speak Truth.
“When you meet someone let them talk – eventually their speech will reveal who they really are.” – Pastor V. S. Brice
Your speech reveals what kind of Christian you are. Since God has predestined us to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, we should always be mindful of this and use our tongues accordingly. The Bible is our Instruction Manual for living. Therefore, we must stop hiding It in plain sight. Take your Bible off that bookcase and read It. His Word is meant to be read – to be heard – and His Instructions are meant to be followed.
We all must stop hindering God and stay steadfast in His Word. We must let the Word of God manage our thoughts and our tongue will follow. Then our Christian spiritual health will be beyond reproach.
