There’s A Blessing In Your Mouth

Pastor Keith Hassell

FOUNDATION SCRIPTURE:  James 3:8-12 

I.          The Nature Of The Tongue

            A.        It is small, like a bit or a rudder, which turn the course of a horse or a ship

            B.         Like a small spark in a forest, the tongue can do great damage(ruin reputation, begin                  strife, spread lies, separate intimate friends, offend a brother, etc.)

            C.        Unlike animals, no man can tame the tongue(Only God by His Holy Spirit)

            D.        The Tongue is full of deadly poison(hate, abuse, anger, foul language, filthy jokes,                      course jesting, criticism, judgmentalism, condemnation, belittling, vengeance,                             backbiting, rebellion, murder, deceit, lying, destruction, etc.)

E.                  The tongue can bless or it can curse

                        2.         I Corinthians 4:12  Being reviled, we bless

                        3.         Isaiah 65:8  "As the new wine is found in the cluster and one says, 'Do not                                             destroy it, for a blessing is in it,' so I will do for My servant's sake."
