1. Christians are exhorted to speak gospel words.

5 So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire! – James 3:5 (ESV)

9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are mad e in the likeness of God. 10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. – James 3:9 (ESV)

14 Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, will be counted as cursing. – Proverbs 27:14 (ESV)

Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend – Proverbs 27:5,6 (ESV)

2. Gospel words/deeds only flow from a heart that knows the sweetness of forgiveness.

  1. Drench yourself in the forgiveness of Christ
  2. Repent from any rottenness in your heart
  3. Commit yourself to giving grace!
  4. Forgive in light of Christ’s amazing forgiveness to you.

Chris grew up in a moral home, but didn’t find the grace of Christ until he was a sophomore in college. He began to devour the Word and was soon helping to lead bible studies, outreaches, and worship at church. He married his beautiful wife, Tara, in the summer of 2002.
