Thoughts From Ephesians-Thought # 36-How To Live Out Your New Identity (Eph. 4:25-32) -Replace Corrupt Talk With Edifying Talk

In place of corrupt speech we  need edifying speech. We need  speech  that  builds up folks instead  of bringing folks down.  We  must  speak encouraging word that  give grace to  the hearers.  We must be people who are  encouragers  like Barnabas.

Paul adds, “And don’t grieve God’s Holy Spirit” (v.30) The Spirit can be lied to, offended, dishonored, and disobeyed. Sins of the tongue can lead to the withdrawal of the influence of the Holy Spirit.

Christians  must ask will what I am doing or saying please or grieve  the Holy Spirit?
