That is what Paul did. He wrote to the Corinthians, “And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak” (2 Cor. 4:13, NKJV). Not only did Paul do this, but the apostles at large did this as well. “But Peter and John answered and said to them, ‘Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.’” (Acts 4:19-20). The point is rather clear: that which is in the heart will express itself. Jesus said this (Matthew 12:35), the apostles said this, and life’s experiences teach us this. A lesson to be learned, then, is with what do we fill our heart? RT
