The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
– It is good and right to recognize the need to control the tongue.
-How can we control our tongue so that it will not take us to hell?
I. Purify the Mind
👉Change the source of the foul tongue
(Rom.12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”)
II. Pray to the Creator of the mind
👉Pray for New mindset
(Acts 8:22 ‘Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart.)
III. Create a Proper Habit
👉Replace the sinful with the righteous
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
-as believers in Christ, we need to see Christianity through our words
