Sometimes I hear people claiming to be Christians and out of the same mouth using filthy language. As a Christian, your speech must be pure, before the world and before God. We represent Jesus Christ, so we have to live as though we’re taking Jesus everywhere we go because we are.
Our language should not contain curse words, sexually explicit speech, harsh criticism, hatred, or anything else that does not produce the love of God. We are new creatures. The old person has passed away and you have become a new person. I would like you to underline filthy language, but there’s more.
The scriptures say that God’s wrath is coming on the world because of all of these things: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry anger, rage, malice, slander, habitual lying, and filthy language from your lips. Believe it or not, this is the shortlist, but it’s a start.
God loves us so much that He has given us the power to be like Him through Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable. The Bible tells us to be imitators of God. Lastly, it commands us to deny the flesh from evil desires.
How will you represent God today? Consider His love for you and don’t take His grace for granted (2 Corinthians 6:1-2). Our salvation cost Jesus His life.
Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:
God, I know that I am a sinner. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins and I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the grave, for me. I open my heart and life for You to come in, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, God for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Read the Book of John in the Bible. Find out who Christ is, and how He loves you, yes you!
