SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (MY BIG FAT MOUTH - 3)

main image

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we ALL could really use some better Understanding in Knowing that there is some Serious Power in the WORDS that WE SPEAK! (For Example…) Our WORDS have the Power to Give Life… but our WORDS also have the Power to Take Life! (Jesus once said…) "Out of the overflow of the heart - the MOUTH SPEAKS!” -- So we’ve been taking the past few weeks here at COC to talk a little more about the WORDS we often Speak - and then start attempting to get a little better in our own lives with a few of those areas… in a Series we’re calling MY BIG FAT MOUTH! We’re heading into our Third Week this week here at COCDon’t Miss It! (And…Bring A Friend Too!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (3) LYING

 

How Does God Feel About LYING...? (Proverbs 12:22) The Lord DETESTS – LYING LIPS… but He DELIGHTS in those who TELL THE TRUTH!

 

The Source Of LIES… (John 8:44) For you are the children of your father the devil… and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always HATED THE TRUTH - because there is NO TRUTH in him! When he LIES… it is consistent with his character… for he is a LIAR and the FATHER OF LIES!

 

Three Things Satan Wants From You…

(1) TO GET YOU TO LIE!

(2) TO GET YOU TO LIE TO YOURSELF!

(3) TO LIVE A LIE!

 

LIES BRING BONDAGE… TRUTH BRINGS FREEDOM!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)

Sunday Snapshot… (2) CRITICIZING

 

Galatians 5:15…But if you are always biting and devouring one another… WATCH OUT!  BEWARE of DESTROYING one another!

 

Proverbs 12:18…Some people make Cutting Remarks– but the WORDS of the Wise bring Healing!

 

Ephesians 4:29…Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you SAY be Good and Helpful- so that your WORDS will be an Encouragement to those who hear them.

 

When it comes to difficult PEOPLE/SITUATIONS in YourLife... Are you a FAULT FINDER or a HOPE DEALER?

 

People who are HYPER-CRITICAL… are usually very HYPO-CRITICAL!

 

Matthew 7:5b……first take the plank out of your own eye - and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
