What Your Mouth Reveals | Romans 3:13-14 | Steve Wainright
“Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.” “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.” -Romans 3:13-14
The mouth of a sinner is like an open grave. The smell of death comes from the heart and the stench of a rottening body is in the sinner’s mouth. Your tongue can cut people to pieces.
We all stand as guilty sinners before God. So how do we get rid of the guilt that comes from sin? The only way to get rid of that guilt is to confess that sin to God and put your faith and trust in Christ’s work on the cross. When you trust in Christ, He gives you a new vocabulary and the restraining power of His Holy Spirit. When guilt is there, that is a sign that the Spirit of God is there, showing you that you are a sinner.
May your words be few and seasoned with grace.
