SUNDAY MORNING TEACHING

TOPIC:                    INTRODUCTION TO THE USE OF THE TONGUE

TEXT:                               Prov. 10:18-21
MEMORY VERSE:             Prov. 18: 21
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”.

We welcome everyone to the new series of the study of the world of God this New Year. We want to emphasize on the fact of the great importance attached to the study of God’s word. 2Tim. 2:15. Therefore every person that is identified with this great ministry should do well to be present during the morning teaching session called  Sunday School.

We are repeating the series on the USE OF THE TONGUE and today is just the introduction to the series. We shall spend some time today on the REASONS why we should pick this as a topic and at such a time as this.

REASONS FOR THE STUDY OF THE USE OF THE TONGUE:

1.         THE TONGUE POSSESSES THE POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH: Prov. 18:21; 13:3; Psalm 39:1;21:23.
For anyone to be alive Spirit, Soul and Body he must learn to use his tongue aright. Anybody who makes wrong use of his tongue will meet with a death sentence. On the contrary, anybody who insists on the correct use of the tongue will live to enjoy.

2.         IT DETERMINES ONE’S LIFE SPAN: Psalm. 34:12-14; 1Pet. 3:10-12
You may either live long with satisfaction or die before your time depending on how you use your tongue. The reason why so many people have died before their time could be as a result of the wrong ways they may have used their tongues. Beware!

3.         THE TONGUE DETERMINES OUR ACCEPTANCE AS GOD’S CHILDREN. Matt. 12:34-37; James. 1:26; Prov. 10:19-21.
            Your acceptance on the last day as God’s child will largely depend on whether you used your tongue right or not. If you say that you are born again but your tongue is loose, your religion is vain. Read James 1:26 again.

4.         THE TONGUE IS LITTLE BUT HARD TO CONTROL: James. 3:3-8; Psalm. 32:9.
The Lord in giving provision for the control of the tongue provided two gates – the soft gate which are the two lips and the two sets of teeth as the iron gate. How can you be innocent if you neglect these two gates and misuse your tongue to speak evil? But you can through prayer bring your tongue under control.

5.         THE TONGUE IS VERY SMALL BUT MAKES GREAT MEN: James.3:5; Acts.26:24-32.
            The tongue has the power to either make or mar a man. Many people have risen to places of great prominence as a result of how they used their tongues. Others are destroyed and eaten up by worms because they spoke contrary to the will of God. Brethren your tongue is mighty and important. Make a proper use of it.
