Plea for Grace September 13, 2022

James 3:6-10 ESV - 
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell. 
7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, 
8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 
9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. 10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.

Matthew 4:1-3 ESV - 
1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread."

God created language and gifted us with the ability to communicate through language. Satan, the enemy of our souls, the father of lies, uses language to tempt us to sin and to deceive us into believing lies about God and His Word. “Did God actually say . . .?” was Satan’s question to Eve in Genesis 3. He aimed to tempt her to doubt God’s word. His tactics have not changed . . .

Psalm 141:3-4 ESV – 3 Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips! 4 Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity, and let me not eat of their delicacies!

Ephesians 4:29 ESV – 29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
