Text: Ephesians 4:29
“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister Grace unto the hearers”.
Communication is an act of passing a message across to someone or people.
It’s also a process where we share our feelings, thoughts, ideas or experiences, in a way that it’s understood.
The above scripture talked about “corrupt communication”. This means that there is an “incorrupt communication”.
A corrupt communication entails the use of harmful, abusive, immoral, and sinful words.
An incorrupt communication is one seasoned with Grace (col 4v6). It is a conversation that does good to the hearer, and soothe the soul of the troubled. (Prov. 15v4)
Take a pause and ask yourself, “what communication proceeds out of my mouth?” “Is it corrupt or incorrupt?”
As believers, the words of our mouth should have a positive effect on the people we converse with. Our words should be seasoned with Grace. Those around us should be willing to hear us speak always.
As carriers of the Holy Spirit, through our words, we can make a difference wherever we find ourselves. Our words can as well lead sinners to the cross.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me not to use harmful words, but season my mouth with words of Grace.
