Purified lips

Zephaniah 3:9”….For then I will give to the peoples purified lips..”

Boy! I like the words purified lips! Yes, Lord, lips got to get pure…..!  We have many celebrities and influential people plunging into lips cosmetic surgery, lips treatment and what not; my conundrum today – without a beautiful and clean heart, all that comes out from those beautified lips are just filth, anybody listening? A  brainless chirpy glam doll is fit for nothing.

Isaiah cried: “Woe  is me! for I am undone; because I  am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips.” (Isaiah 6:5)  Mark the words, “I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of unclean lips!” How very true! This kind of confession comes only after you have a vision of God like prophet Isaiah, otherwise, people are never ever convicted that their lips need to get pure.  Three students joined our Abide Angel Home who also study in our school, exactly after one month, I get a call from their mother who said that her mother was very seriously ill and in death bed, so she would like to take the children home, believing her story, I sent them home on leave – actually on that particular day it was the birthday of one of the girls.  The woman had no qualms in dragging her mother’s name with such a big lie just for a birthday bash.  Imagine! Wicked lips!  This biggest comedy is that the family are regular church-goers,  I talk to people with such ‘wicked .lips’ almost every day.

We have the urban crowd swear, curse, lie, manipulate, brag, swagger, guffaw, mock, slander, gossip, and still say ‘JESUS’,  God is looking for pure lips today.  Recently while I was traveling in the train, a young girl was struggling to get her ticket confirmed, an elderly hindu man who was reading a spiritual book for several hours looked at her and said boisterously, ‘show the ticket collector a hundred rupee note and you can get your ticket confirmed.’  I wondered what did he achieve from reading those spiritual books for that many hours!  Wicked lips! Listen, you get pure lips only through JESUS!  What you say speaks volumes about you! Are you listening? Do not impulsively speak! Think! The Bible says: Proverbs 16:13 “Righteous lips are a king's delight, and he who speaks honestly is beloved.” God bless you!
