>The quality of my words determines the quality of my life.
 
Words that have impacted my life:
 
“After Jesus finished speaking, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, for he taught as one who had real authority- quite unlike the teachers of religious law”   Matthew 7:28-29
 
“The sky and the earth won’t last forever, but my words will”   Matthew 24:35
 
“And I tell you this, that you must give an account of judgement day of every idle word you speak. The words you say now reflect your fate then; either you will be justifi8ed by them or you will be condemned”  Matthew 12:36-37
 
MY WORDS CHANGE ETERNITY WHEN I USE THEM TO….
 
1. ENCOURAGE SOMEONE WHO IS STRUGGLING.
 
“I’m eager to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. In this way, each of us will be a blessing to the other”  Romans 1:12
 
2. CONFRONT SOMEONE WHO IS BEING UNJUST.
 
“Love is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out”   1 Corinthians 13:6
 
3. EXPRESS LOVE TO SOMEONE I CARE ABOUT.
 
“Dear children, let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions”  1 John 3:18
 
4. INTRODUCE SOMEONE TO JESUS.
 
“There is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents”  Luke 15:10
 
When introducing people to Jesus, tell your own story. Your life before Jesus, your decision to follow Jesus, and your life with Jesus.
 
“But my life is worth nothing unle3ss I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus – the work of telling others the Good News about God’s wonderful kindness and love”  Acts 20:24
 
5. SAY YES TO JESUS.
 
“For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved”   Romans 10:9
