"The Defilement of a Person

“The Defilement of a Person”

But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. For out of the heart come evil thoughts---murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what defile a person… Matthew 15-20a

The defilement of a person does not come from the outside, but from what is in the HEART. A person’s MOUTH tells of that person’s mindset, and you can pretty much tell a lot about a person when they open their mouth and speak.

Out of their MOUTH comes the true essence of the HEART. And the HEART is DECEITFUL above ALL things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? (Jer. 17:9) The Lord searches the heart and examines the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct. (v10).

So since it is the things that come out of a person’ s mouth, which indicates the content of their HEART, that defiles a person, it must be the HEART of mankind that is EVIL, WICKED, CONIVING, SCHEMING, and DEPRAVED. Because the EVIL THOUGHTS, MURDER, ADULTERY, SEXUAL IMMORALITY, THEFT, FALSE TESTIMONY (lying), and SLANDER, among other corrupt, depraved, and evil doings, brings DEFILEMENT to a person.

When a person comes to Christ for their SALVATION, the process begins in the HEART, and from the HEART to the MOUTH, and SALVATION has come. Romans 10:10 says: “For it is with your HEART that you believe and are justified, and it is with your MOUTH that you profess your FAITH and are SAVED.

If you declare with your MOUTH, “Jesus is LORD,” and believe in your HEART that God raised Him from the dead, you will be SAVED. This is a promise from God’s Holy Word. When you are given the invitation from the Holy Spirit of God to come to Christ for the SALVATION of your soul. You must be WILLING to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART and TURN AWAY from your sinful deeds. Then with your MOUTH, CONFESS your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVEING, with your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and receive the HOPE of Heaven for all eternity. We are facing UNCERTAIN, UNNERVING times, some of us BELIEVE that the RETURN of Jesus Christ is IMMENIENT, it COULD happen ANY DAY. Are you READY?? You can be if you do this NOW, while you still have time. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!

Mood: hopeful
