Proverbs, James 3, Matthew 15
Use your words for helping not hurting to produce life not death. If you stumble this week don’t beat yourself up, instead ask for forgiveness and ask Jesus to keep transforming your heart. The good news of the gospel is Jesus who never stumbled, died for the sins of those who stumble. While dying on the cross his enemies yelled at him with hurtful words, and instead of unleashing hell with his words he unleashed heaven saying, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” He unleashed heaven to the very people who stumble, which includes us. In response to his sacrificial love, let’s do what no other created thing can do. As humans we’ve been uniquely created to do what no other created thing can do, which is to praise our Creator with words. So, let’s use our tongues for what they were created to do, which is to praise Jesus, and then let’s strive to use our words in helpful encouraging ways that reflects the great love of Jesus. Let’s stand and worship Jesus.
