“For the mouth speaks from what fills the heart.” — Matt 12:34 NET
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly… with all wisdom.
Guard your heart with all vigilance, for from it are the sources of life.—Death and life are in the power of the tongue.—The godly speak wise words and promote justice. The law of their God controls their thinking; their feet do not slip.—You must let no unwholesome word come out of your mouth, but only what is beneficial for the building up of the one in need, that it may give grace to those who hear.
“For it is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard.”—I had faith when I said.
“Whoever, then, acknowledges me before people, I will acknowledge before my Father in heaven.”—For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness and with the mouth one confesses and thus has salvation.

I hope to see you right away, and we will speak face to face. — 3John 1:14 NET
If only you would tear apart the sky and come down!—As a deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God! I thirst for God, for the living God. I say, “When will I be able to go and appear in God’s presence?”—Make haste, my beloved! Be like a gazelle or a young stag on the mountains of spices.
But our citizenship is in heaven – and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.—We wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.—God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope.—You have not seen him, but you love him.
The one who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!—At that time they will say, “Look, here is our God! We waited for him and he delivered us. Here is the Lord! We waited for him. Let’s rejoice and celebrate his deliverance!”
