Hear Me when I speak sayeth The Lord.
Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth. Proverbs 5:7

My Words are truth and they are life.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

My Words have the power to cleanse your life from evil, purifying the heart and soul.
John 15:1  I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Having been cleansed you can bear much fruit.
John 15:7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

Bearing much fruit glorifies the Father in Heaven.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22

By abiding in Christ and applying His words to your life results in an increase in the fruits of the Spirit in your life.
But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. Luke 8:15

By not abiding in Christ you will be cast out and trodden under the feet of men where Love will be replaced by bitterness, Peace by strife and Joy by sadness.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Matthew 5:13

Set your heart on being steadfast to all the teachings of our Beloved Savior, Jesus Christ.
Matthew 7:24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
