Burning Others with Words (Matthew 26:69-75)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, February 7, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Our words are powerful, our speech betrays us too. If you're converted your speech should betray that. Your speech and actions should show you're a believer.
The tongue can do more damage than the sword. There's a great danger. We damage people with our words. Col 4:6 the strength of the words come from the heart of man. Out of the evil of our heart we speak evil things. The Word of God says we should be slow to speak and swift to hear. We are required by the Word of God to keep ourselves accountable.
We have been commissioned to spread the Word of God with speech. You have no right or excuse to speak evil as a child of God.
Your tongue is like a flame. You can burn people if you're not careful.
Let your speech be seasoned with salt. Not poured out with salt. Seasoned. Love your neighbor with grace but don't forget, just a little salt.

Matthew 26:69-75

69Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee. 70But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. 71And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth. 72And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. 73And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee. 74Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew. 75And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly. (KJV)
