III. WHAT DOES GOD WANTS US TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT CONVERSATION?
NO CORRUPT TALK
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. EPH 4:29
^^^ Today people laugh in the vulgarity of conversation, allowing it often, it’s not helping the soul at all.
^^^ The Bible says, “You shall be holy in all your conversation.”
12 A worthless person, a wicked man Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth, 13 Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, Who points with his fingers; 14 Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife. 15 Therefore his calamity will come suddenly; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing. PROV 6:12-15
IV. HOW DO RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE STAND OUT WITH HIS COMMUNICATION?
LIPS OF RIGHTEOUS
The lips of the righteous bring forth what is acceptable, But the mouth of the wicked what is perverted. PROV 10:32
^^^ Renewing of the mind helps. Not conformed to the world. Have peace read His word.
YES OR NO
But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is of evil. MAT 5:37
^^^ Say “yes” thinking of Jesus guidance.
^^^ Let the Holy Spirit lead
Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person. COL 4:6
AS WE END
We can gauge ourselves if we are with the Lord if our conversation is right. Your yes or no identifies your nearness to God. We are called to have righteous conversation. Do it in the name of Christ.
^^^ All these things will not happen without Christ shedding His blood on the Cross for us. You’re forgiven, your free.
JESUS BLESS YOU
