But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.
Jesus tasted death for all who put their trust in Him. Death is separation from God and separation from the God-kind of life He wants us to live. Because Jesus tasted death for us, we can now walk in the abundant life He has provided. A key to receiving this abundant life has to do with what we feed on and then speak over our lives. Proverbs 18:21 tells us that death and life are in the power of the tongue.
Jesus said man does not live by bread alone but by every Word of God. Jesus also said the Words He spoke are Spirit and they are “life”. Scripture teaches us that out of the abundance of the heart our mouth speaks. So we now have the choice to continue to taste death by feeding on worldly things, and therefore tasting death through the words we speak, or we can feed on God’s Word and taste life by speaking His Word.
Jesus Himself said He only spoke the Words He heard from the Father. Any believer who feeds on worldly things is going to fill their hearts with words of defeat not words of victory. Even James chapter 3 tells us our very own words are what determines the direction our life goes. If you want to live the abundant life God has for you, you must start feeding on the Word of God, and then speak in line with His Word, which produces life. The choice of death or life is up to you.
