The Power of the Tongue (Part 1)

Silver Run Baptist Church - Pastor Kip McKee – November 7, 2010 Morning Service

Proverbs 18:20-21 & James 3:1-12

I. The Words we use MATTER! Our words bring us Blessings or Hardships.

 Our words give POWER to GOOD things or POWER to evil. The choice is ours.

 Our souls literally EAT the words we say. (Proverbs 18:20-21)

 Our Praises bring Blessings to us!

 Our negative words poison us & others.

 Negative words are useful tools for Satan.

II. Criticism should come SLOWLY because NO ONE is perfect!

 Only God and His Word can accurately judge us.

 Our Christian command is to help each other grow CLOSER to Jesus by encouraging one another. (James 3:1-2)

 Jesus said, “He who is without sin throw the first stone.” (John 8:2-11)

III. Criticism should come SLOWLY because we do not always see God’s Plan in the life of others!

 God works in mysterious ways. No man can figure out all God is doing with us. (Isaiah 55:6-11 & John 9:1-7)

Let’s Speak Blessings into our life & the Life of Others!

Let’s ENCOURAGE & BUILD Each Other UP!
