Words are just reflections of the mind.
Sometimes after speaking one says, “I don’t know where that came from.’ Well I do, it came from within your heart and mind.
Was it not within it would not come out?

“ But I say unto you, every idle word that a person shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment.
For by your words you be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.’
(Matthew 12:36-37 in the Holy Bible)
“ It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God.”
(Luke 4:4 in the Holy Bible)
Let your words bring salvation and life to your soul. The scripture says it clearly below.
“But what does it say?’ “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
(Romans 10:8-10,13 in the Holy Bible)
May each of us be perfected in our words!
Let your lips speak the praises of the Lord!
May we speak the Words of Life and Salvation as we share the glorious news of Jesus with others. Tell some one about Jesus today!
