I want to call your attention to Romans 10:10 today as we
speak to you on "THE MOUTH." The importance of THE MOUTH!
Commonly we do not say very much about the mouth, but let
us see what God has to say about it. It is amazing what God
has to say about OUR BODIES in the Bible. For instance,
generally God says we are to "present our bodies a living
sacrifice unto God." Romans 12. In Romans 6 we are to yield
the members of our bodies as "weapons of righteousness unto

Word speaks about it.
In Romans 3 we read of it as a place of sin. "Their throat
is an open sepulcher." "With their tongues they have used
deceit. The poison of asps is under their lips." He is
talking about sin and poison and corruption coming out of
the human mouth!
