The Words We Use

5/23/2021 -

Not a day goes by that we aren’t shaped by words—words spoken to us, words on the news, words on social media, our own words. We’re shaped by words because there is a mysterious and yet certain power in them. The Bible says that there is life and death in the power of the tongue. Words are used to build up and give life. Or, sometimes, they're used to tear down and take life. So, how can we be sure that we are speaking life to others? How can we avoid words that cut and tear down? How can we know we are honoring God with what comes out of our mouths? Answer: God himself is not silent. He is the God who speaks. In Scripture and ultimately in Jesus, we have God’s holy communication to us. His word should be the primary thing that shapes our words so that others might find life in him.
