The Heart and the Tongue Connection
Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had, who wrote in Scripture, “I believed, therefore I spoke.” We also believe, therefore we also speak…16 …therefore we do not become discouraged (2Cor. 4:13-16).
We read in Matthew 12:36-37 Jesus’ firm admonition concerning our speech: "But l say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give an account of it in the day of judgment. "For by your words you will be justified, and by your words, you will be condemned." The way our life turns out agrees with the words we speak. You cannot separate faith from words.
