Matthew 12:33-37

August 30th, 2020

Intro – The words you speak, what you say, are very important. We have all heard the nursery rhyme, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”.  Well, words do hurt! And words indicate what is in your heart.  Love, hate and bitterness are all revealed through the words you speak. (33) Lk.6:45

I. Words are powerful.

A. Especially the word of God.

1. God created through the spoken word. Gen.1:3

2. Jesus is the Word of God in human form. Jn.1:1, Jn.1:14

B. Jesus defeated Satan by the Word of God. Mt.4:3-10, Eph.6:17, Rev.19:15, 21
