Brethren early this morning as I woke up, the sermon – Flying high, resonated. It was our Daddy GO’S sermon yesterday. He told us those things that can hinder our flying high and one of them is sin.
This morning, we are just going to look at how filthy communication can be a hindrance to our flying high.
Col 3:8 Paul speaking to believers like you and I advises us to put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of our mouth.
What is filthy communication?
Unclean words, dirty words unwholesome words etc.
Beloved, words make or Mar us .we are what we say.
Words are like eggs, once voiced (broken) it cannot be fully recovered. As soon as an egg drops to the ground, it breaks to pieces and spills its content.
The words we speak indicate the nature we carry.
Words coming from a heart washed and sanctified by the blood of Jesus emit grace and imparts grace on the hearer.
As believers, we are to minister grace. Our speech must draw souls to the Lord not the opposite. If we must fly, then we must minister grace. The apostles were able to fly because they lived and communicated like Jesus and so they were called Christians.
They didn’t have mistaken identity, they were not among the midst multitude.
Our songs and music as believers should communicate grace if we must fly. Our communication should edify others.
Beloved, if we must fly we must examine ourselves; do our words build up and motivate our brethren and those around us to draw closer to God? When we speak, do unbelievers’ ears prick or does it make them exclaim “OH I want to be a Christian!” Does your speech build up people, relationships and families or leads to quarrels, family separation and divorce?
Beloved, let us call on the Lord to cleanse our lips and make us a sanctuary for the Lord so we can fly.
We must avoid Gossips, backbiting, unclean jokes and jesting, foul languages, inappropriate and lewd communication, forwarding of hate speeches, Illicit or vulgar writings on social media.
Any time we want to communicate we must bear in mind that our goal as believers, is to edify and minister grace.
Our words cannot minister grace if our heart is unclean. A sinner cannot communicate or minister grace for out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks and a dirty well cannot yield clean water. You are your words! May our words minister grace to all that have contact with us, as we fly this season in Jesus name.
1. Let us thank the Lord for his words for he sent his words to heal us and deliver us from every destruction. Psalm 107:20.
2. Father, please cleanse my heart with the blood of your son Jesus and make me a true minister of grace by my words in Jesus name.
3. Father, please let my mouth always speak life, words that edifies, health, healing, prosperity to everyone around me and draw them to Jesus in Jesus name
4. Father, please do not allow my month to ensnare me in Jesus name
5. Father, help me to fly as I make impart on my generation in Jesus name.
6. Father let my word always point others to Jesus in Jesus name.
7. Father, help me to fly in holiness and righteousness in Jesus name.
Thank you Lord for answered prayers in Jesus name, Amen!
Thank You Jesus.
Jesus Loves You.
