MY MOUTH SENDS FORTH CLEAN WATER!
“Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet [water] and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so [can] no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.” (James 3:11-12)
Now that you are saved and Born-Again there are Rivers of Living Water within you. So, as you speak, your mouth sends forth clean water out of a clear and sanctified heart. A heart full of faith and good tidings. As you begin to understand the great and awesome Power that words have in your life, begin to use it correctly. Words fitly spoken has and carries tremendous value: “A word fitly spoken [is like] apples of gold in pictures of silver.” Proverbs 25:11. “A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word [spoken] in due season, how good [is it]!” Proverbs 15:23.
All the words that pass your mouth must be clean water. This is able to refresh others and edify them. Make an effort to change the way that you speak. Let your words be encouraging and build up others around you. A timely and fitting word is precious and pleasing. Let us look at what Jesus said about words: “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.”Matthew 15:18. So, begin to place a premium on the words that pass your lips.
