Stop It!

Day 12 – Soul Detox

Ephesians 4:17-32

Devotional

God’s Word gives us a very important instruction that we must all take to heart and obey. That instruction is to speak life-giving words to others every chance we get.

Who do you need to start speaking life-giving words to? How will you go about doing it?

18 Their intelligence has been shrouded in darkness, and they are estranged from the life of God, because of the ignorance in them, which in turn comes from resisting God’s will.

via Ephesians 4:17-32 CJB – Therefore I say this — indeed, in – Bible Gateway.

And there we have it! A Word to all humans: Resisting JESUS makes us STUPID!

Recently I read it has been a ‘doctrine’ of some for some time now that GOD accepts us all as we are; we can become a Christian and continue to live in the same way as we did prior to our conversion.  NOT SO!

28 The thief must stop stealing; instead, he should make an honest living by his own efforts. This way he will be able to share with those in need.

via Ephesians 4:17-32 CJB – Therefore I say this — indeed, in – Bible Gateway.

Read that verse substituting thief for . . . Drunkard, drug addict, homosexual, adulterer, fornicator, abortionists, liar, gossip, murderer, rapist, slanderer, etc. — you call it.  Yeshua said STOP IT!

How’s that for plain and easy to understand?

And to sum it up for today:

29 Let no harmful language come from your mouth, only good words that are helpful in meeting the need, words that will benefit those who hear them.
30 Don’t cause grief to God’s Ruach HaKodesh, for he has stamped you as his property until the day of final redemption.
31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, violent assertiveness and slander, along with all spitefulness.
32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted; and forgive each other, just as in the Messiah God has also forgiven you.

via Ephesians 4:17-32 CJB – Therefore I say this — indeed, in – Bible Gateway.

A Victorious Friday, my Friends!
