What's coming out of you?

James 3: 6-12 

                "And the tongue is [in a sense] a fire, the very world of injustice and unrighteousness; the tongue is set among our members as that which contaminates the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life [the cycle of man’s existence], and is itself set on fire by [b]hell (Gehenna).For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and sea creatures, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the human tongue; it is a restless evil [undisciplined, unstable], full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God. 10 Out of the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. These things, my brothers, should not be this way [for we have a moral obligation to speak in a manner that reflects our fear of God and profound respect for His precepts]. 11 Does a spring send out from the same opening both [c]fresh and bitter water? 12 Can a fig tree, my brothers, produce olives, or a grapevine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce [d]fresh."

Jesus declares that is not what goes in the man that defiles him, but what comes out of him, that's what defiles the man.  Matthew 15:11

Today if you find that there are some things that you are saying, doing and manifesting that bring negative results, the Bible tells us to let a man examine himself and see if you are truly in the faith.

Even in the Book of Revelation 3:16 Jesus says, "But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! English Standard Version So, because you are lukewarm, and neither ..."

This is a discipline that must manifested in the life and breath of Christ Jesus' believers!
