What Are YOU Full Of?

It’s WORDS WEEK 2013 here on GUWG, where we’re examining what God says about communication.

We started off yesterday with our key verse, words straight from the mouth of Jesus:

The mouth speaks what the ♥ is full of. (Luke 6:45)

So, here’s today’s question:

What’s YOUR ♥ full of?

In Galatians 5, God gives us a handy checklist to see where our ♥s are REALLY at. Here’s a list of what flows from the normal human full-of-yourself-instead-of-the-Holy-Spirit ♥:

  • hatred
  • jealousy
  • discord
  • factions
  • rage
  • idolatry
  • drunkenness
  • selfish ambition
  • sexual immorality

Yikes. And that’s only a partial list — I excluded some of the more graphic ones. (The complete list can be found here.)

But there’s hope. Here’s what flows from a ♥ full of the Spirit:

  • love
  • joy
  • peace
  • patience
  • kindness
  • goodness
  • faithfulness
  • gentleness
  • self-control

If someone were to ask those closest to you to choose the above items that best describe the words that come out of your mouth, what would they say?

Our mouths speak what our ♥s are full of. Ask God to fill yours with LOVE.
