Sermon Notes : 

"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God"

                                                                                   -Romans 10:17

Continuing in the instruction of Proverbs 18:21, Dr. Maurice A. Johnson spoke of words’ being critical, powerful and important.  That Bible passage reads, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”  As believers, we need to wield our words wisely, noting what we say, when and how we say.  Ensure that we are speaking God’s words.  When we do so, we get closer to aligning with God’s purpose for our lives.

 

Dr. Johnson honed in on the power of confession.  Generally, confession is associated with admission of guilt or wrongdoing.  However, in our spiritual walk, confession works for our good.  Note Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful That promised)”.  Here “profession” and “confession” are synonymous terms meaning speaking in agreement with something.  For Christians, that something should always be the word of God. 

 

When we assemble together, we need to confess words that will build up and lift one another.  This goes well beyond complimenting the outward appearance.  Profess what the Bible says.  “You are the head and not the tail.”  “You are blessed coming in and going out.”  “Your children will rise up and call you blessed.” These are examples of edifying professions using Deuteronomy 28 and Proverbs 31.

 

Jesus proclaims in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”  If our tongue’s fruit is to be life, we must speak the words of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
