Love one another – Prayer for November 9. Praise the Lord everybody! Words have power! Power to uplift and power to tear down. In the body of Christ, it is not unusual to find gossip and backbiting going on. Souls come in broken down with sin and abused by Satan only to be shunned and verbally slapped around by older “established” Christians. They make new converts feel like they’re trying to join a college Fraternity.
Bible Verse for Today
“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:29-32)
We must stop using our mouths to destroy our brothers and sisters in Christ and stop chasing away new converts and sinners who are searching for deliverance and healing.
We need to take out time to hear from God before we speak into another person’s life whenever possible, no emotional rushing to judgment, no quick saying of “doth sayeth the Lord” before we hear the Lord really say it.
Let us be careful not to let any corrupt communication come out of our mouths except that which God has ordained for the chastisement and edification of His people. Let us encourage and not discourage with our conversation, both verbal and nonverbal. Jesus tells us in God’s word, “this is how they will know you are my disciple, that you have love one to another.” Let the love of Christ always be on your tongue. God bless you all.
