We have often been admonished about the destructive force of the tongue. It is that small element that can do a lot of good, but it can do extreme evil. We as Christians are falling prey to a very clever enemy and the very words we speak will one day condemn us forever. Well, how do I know whether it is wrong to say it or not? You can know by a very simple rule: If you wouldn’t say it in front of the individual of whom you are speaking, “DO NOT SAY IT!” This is a clear indication it should not be said. Have you ever wondered why you just love gossiping (Yes, that’s what is). We believe it has to do with unresolved, and not yet surrendered inner issues. But, but, but these issues are going to hammer our eternal fate, if we don’t get it together: Matthew 12:36-37, “And I tell you this, that you must give account on Judgment Day for every idle word you speak.” Our words now reflect our fate then, either we will be justified by them or we will be condemned.”
Have you ever asked yourself, “Why am I still here? Why am I not growing up into a mature man as the scripture has said. Ephesians 4:11-15, So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head that is, Christ.
Eph. 3:16-17 (NIV) "I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."
