Say It In Words
"Say It In Words" is the next session for February. We will move beyond what the world's hoopla of Valentine's day commercializes as an idea of love. We will discuss the biblical principle of love. Our guest speakers will give us tools to navigate the path of communication.
According to the Bible, love is the foundation of our pure existence and the essential connection to God and others. Family and friendships are two of the most important relationships most people have in life. The way we communicate in these relationships are critical to the success of them. It can determine the depth of vital relationships, as well as the impact the relationships have on our lives. Have you ever considered the impact your personal relationship with God affect the relationship you have with others?
Ephesians 4 provide the expectations of how we ‘the body of Christ’ should conduct ourselves when it comes to all people, not just the people we like but ALL. Read this chapter to get the fullness of Ephesians 4.
Ephesians 4:2-3 gives the prerequisite of how to “say it in words” , “with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace”.
Without humility, gentleness, patience and void of love we can cause destruction with our words. We are instructed to speak the truth in love. Without truth we cheat others and ourselves of an opportunity to grow. Not to mention harboring offense against our neighbor.
Ephesians 4:25; Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
In this season, allow Holy Spirit to partner with you with gentle correction and promptings when we are speaking to others. Allow this season to be a rekindling of deeper relationships that are important to us. Remember humility, gentleness, patience and love are the key components to "Say It In Words."
