The Tongue


<< Previous Index Next >>

The Tongue

James 3:6 And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

 

The Word of God compares the tongue to fire,

Says that it sets things on fire,

That it gets its fire from hell.

 

In its design, the tongue is quite a piece of handiwork.

A unique muscle... attached on one end... loose on the other.

One end rooted in the physical, the other breaching that mystical gap between the souls of men.

One end anchoblack, the other unchecked and free... free to bless... free to curse.

 

We see the great loss of virgin timber because of a small campfire left unattended.

So the tongue is a small member of the human body

But it can quickly create major problems.

 

I.              An Evil Tongue:Solomon wrote: "An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire." (Prov. 16:27).

A.            Too often in a local church there is a brother or sister who digs up evil and spreads it around the congregation till it burns out of control and destroys lives.

1.             Instead of trying to remove evil in a scriptural way,

a)              The ungodly use it as choice conversation

b)             God calls it gossip!

2.             Thoughtless words can burn like fire and often leave lasting scars.

3.             The tongue has the ability

a)              To destroy reputations,

b)             Divide the closest of friends and

c)              Create factions in the church.

4.             As physical fire destroys wood so the tongue, uncontrolled, destroys the unity and peace of the body of Christ.

B.            The Bible warns that an evil tongue will:

1.             Lie.Proverbs 6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

2.             Flatter. Proverbs 6:24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

3.             Pour out foolishness.Proverbs 15:2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

C.            An evil tongue is perverse.Proverbs 15:4 A wholesome tongue [is] a tree of life: but perverseness therein [is] a breach in the spirit.

 

II.           The controlled tongue of the child of God: does not backbite, nor do evil, nor take up a reproach against another.Psalms 15:1 LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.†† 3 [He that] backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

A.            Remember that the tongue is as a fire and it can kindle great harm.James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

B.            The Bible say that an angry countenance is a way to drive away a backbiting tongue.Proverbs 25:23 The north wind driveth away rain: so [doth] an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.

C.            The mouth of the righteous is used for wisdom and judgment.Psalms 37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

D.            We are exhorted to keep our tongue.Proverbs 21:23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.

E.             We are exhorted to use our tongue in a soft manner.Proverbs 25:15 By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.

F.             We are exhorted to use our tongue with wisdom and kindness.Proverbs 31:26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness.

 

III.        Lack of control of a Christianís tongue:is a sign of failure in living for the Saviour.James 1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion [is] vain.

A.            When the brethren do not love each other, they abide in death.I John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death.

B.            When we become angry with a brother, we should go to them, not talk about them.Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

C.            The tongue is a test of whether we are living for the Lord.Proverbs 16:1 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, [is] from the LORD.

D.            The tongue is not the way we show love that we have for others, but it can show we do not love them.IJo 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
