John 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, YE HAVE NO LIFE IN YOU.

Usually when we think of “life”, we think in terms of “existence”, but life is much more than just existing. A person can be alive physically, and yet be dead spiritually at the same time. The Bible talks about a woman who lives only for pleasure, and that this person is dead, while she is alive. This is not just about women, but for anyone who's mind set is to live just to please themselves.

1Ti 5:6 But she that liveth in pleasure IS DEAD WHILE SHE LIVETH.

Life encapsulates everything from existence to what we do as actions. It is experiencing what we see, hear, feel, taste, and touch. Jesus said that he came that we might have “LIFE”, and have it more abundantly!! (John 10:10) Abundantly means, “Over, and above, to have more than enough”

We have all heard the term, “you are what you eat”. Physical life is dependent on the food we eat. If we stop eating food, we die!!! Food within the physical body delivers nutrients, and vitamins necessary to keep our bodies alive. Our outward actions are connected to the health of our bodies, even our mental state is affected by what we eat.

When it comes to “eternal” life, that life is also dependent on a far different kind of food group. Jesus said unless we eat his flesh, and drink his blood we have no life in us. The flesh, and blood of Jesus is the Word of God, and that Word became flesh. As Jesus says in verse 63. It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. THE WORDS THAT I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE.

God created the universe with his spoken Words, and everything that exists is being held together by that same Word of his power. (Hebrews 1:3) Our life's we are experiencing are created by the Word of God that we have eaten, and spoken out of our mouths. Normal food goes into our “stomach”, but the Word of God that we eat goes into our hearts, and it is from within our hearts the Word of God is spoken which produces “good things”

Luke 6:45 The good person out of THE GOOD TREASURE OF HIS HEART PRODUCES GOOD, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART HIS MOUTH SPEAKS.

Just as God created the universe through spoken words, we also are to create, and frame our lives through speaking words. We don't just speak any words, we are to speak the Word of God. (just shows us how important it is to know, and speak the Word of God) We are to call things out that are not as though they were, because the things that are not can change the things that are. God called Abraham the “FATHER OF MANY NATIONS”, (that is what his name means) when he was NOT the father of many nations at that time. The Lord God changed Abram's name to Abraham so that Abraham would not nullify what he said about him. Every time Abraham spoke his name he was calling things out that were not as though they were. So did every one who spoke his name.

James 3:6 The tongue also is a fire. The tongue is the most evil part of the body. It pollutes the whole person. IT SETS A PERSON'S WHOLE WAY OF LIFE ON FIRE. And the tongue is set on fire by hell. (NiRV)

No wonder the whole world is in the condition it is because of what people have said, and are saying today. The “tongue” sets our whole way of “LIFE” on fire!! No man can tame the tongue, but what is impossible with man is possible with God. Only the Spirit led life can bring our tongue into subjection to the will of God.

James 3:8 BUT NO ONE CAN CONTROL THE TONGUE. It is an evil thing that never rests. It is full of deadly poison.

Being double minded is connected to being double tongued!!!

James 3:9 With our tongues we praise our Lord and Father. With our tongues we call down curses on people. We do it even though they have been created to be like God.
James 3:10 PRAISE AND CURSING COME OUT OF THE SAME MOUTH. My brothers and sisters, it shouldn't be that way.

If we want to see good days in our life then we must learn to speak good things. Before this can happen we must renew our mind so that both our heart and mind are in agreement to the truth of the Word of God.

1Peter 3:10 For "WHOEVER DESIRES TO LOVE LIFE AND SEE GOOD DAYS, LET HIM KEEP HIS TONGUE FROM EVIL AND HIS LIPS FROM SPEAKING DECEIT;
1Peter 3:11 let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.
1Peter 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."
