1 Timothy 4:12 (NET) Let no one look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in your speech, conduct, love, faithfulness, and purity.
After learning and understanding how godliness was beneficial to the believer, Gerald wanted to truly be godly because he was tired of the defeated life he was living. For example, he had been spending so much on drugs and he now understood that the power of the divine life could keep him in divine health, but this power is unleashed through godliness.
One of the things the grace of God does to us believers is that it empowers us to live godly lives.
Titus 2:11-12 (NET) For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age…
In today’s Bible verse, we see five areas in which godliness can be made manifest.
The first is in our speech or words.
If a man has control over his words, he has control over his life and destiny (see James 3:2, Proverbs 13:3). Proverbs 18:21 puts it this way: “The tongue has the power of life and death.” The stakes are high. Your words can either speak life, or your words can speak death. Our tongues can build others up, or they can tear them down.
Go into today remembering that one of the important areas of Godliness is in the way we use our tongues. If you can control the use of your tongue, you would be able to control other areas of your life.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you use your tongue wisely.
‘Lord, let all my words be seasoned with salt. Let no idle word proceed out of my mouth.
