As we are about to enter into a New Year. We need to be more mindful of what we do and what we say. We say we study our Bible, but what I hear coming from the majority of our mouths doesn't line up with the Word of God.
The Word of God will deliver and set us free. When we speak contrary to it, we set other things in motions."Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit"(Proverbs 18:21NKJV). The words people say wield great power. Also James tells us, "For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body"(James 3:2NKJV). Here we know that the word perfect means mature.
That opens another door...many will say I'm not perfect instead of confessing what the Word of God say,"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new"(2 Cor 5:17KJV). One point as we enter in 2011, We need to be mindful of what we say. If it doesn't bring glory to God, then we should not be saying it. Enjoy your blessings.
