Suit Up

Are you worried?

The world is drowning in sin, but you know that, don’t you?

So what are your reasons to rejoice?

For me First and foremost, JESUS saves sinners and I am one of them.
Another is that even in this sick world and I don’t mean COVID, GOD is with us and He has a plan; even if America falls to Communism in 2021 HE will still be faithful to His Children.

So let us suit up. (Ephesians 6:10-19)
Let us fasten not our eyes on the filth in this world. (Psalm 101:3-5)
Let us not conform to this world. (Romans 12:2-4)
Let us rejoice. (Philippians 4:4-9)

Words. Words. Words.

Words. I like words. Words are vehicles of communication; they inform. However, problems arise with using Words. They can be perceived differently than intended. They can be spoken or written hastily. They can be used to edify the hearers. They can be used to wound the hearers (or readers). The speaker is responsible for his or her words. The hearer is responsible too; responsible to do his or her best to listen for understanding and to ask in a spirit of learning, did you mean what I have perceived? This is communication. It’s limited it seems to me these days.

These days we have Word Police. We get warnings or ticketed when we use words others do not like. Now, depending upon the intent of our hearts, that might not put us in such bad company. Here, let me give you an example.

Yeshua.
Some know Him as Jesus. If He were walking the earth today in His GODMAN body He would get warned and ticketed often.
Yeshua said what He meant and meant what He said.
And it was NEVER to hurt; it was ALWAYS to heal. I suspect often, though, it did sting and smart some of the hearers.  (It has me!)
Would you like an example? Matthew 23. Take a look.

And let us do likewise. Let our words be chosen for the purpose of healing, even when they hurt.
I know, it’s easier said than done; but, we can practice!

Ephesians 4:29  (AMP) 29 Do not let unwholesome [foul, profane, worthless, vulgar] words ever come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good for building up others, according to the need and the occasion, so that it will be a blessing to those who hear [you speak]. source
