“In the beginning was the word,and the word was with God,and the word was God.The same was in the beginning with God.All things were made by him;and without him was not any thing made that was made.In him was life;and the life was the light of men.And the light shineth in darkness;and the darkness comprehended it not”.(John 1:1-5).
It is plain to see that words are life or death depending on if we believe in the light of life sent to us(JESUS) or remain in darkness (away from God). “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that Love it shall eat the fruit thereof”.(Proverbs 18:21).
The choice of right and wrong words make all the difference in this life.
1.)Bitter Words of the wicked= Who whet their tongue like a sword,and bend their bows to shoot their arrows,even bitter words: That they may shoot in secret at the perfect:suddenly do they shoot at him,and fear not.(Psalm 64:3,4).
2.)Perverted Words= And the burden of the Lord shall ye mention no more:for every man’s word shall be his burden;for ye have perverted the words of the living God,of the Lord of hosts our God.(Jeremiah 23:36).
3,)Wise Words= Then said I,Wisdom is better than strength:nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised,and his words are not heard.(Ecclesiastes 9:16).
4.)Proper Words= A word fitly (properly) spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.(Proverbs 25:11).
5.)Pleasant Words= Pleasant words are as an honeycomb,sweet to the soul,and health to the bones.(Proverbs 16:24).
How many times do we hear people say: Now those are words to live by………How true! If we apply wisdom to our words it graces the life of the hearers…They can either wound or heal.
PRAISE GOD FOR SENDING THE WORDS OF LIFE THROUGH THE LIGHT OF HIS SON!
