I speak with my words and my life. And my Father tells me in Ephesians 4:15, to speak the truth in love, in all things, both with my speech and my life, “expressing His truth,” (AMP).
Speak the truth in love, in all things… it does not matter if is unpopular, or scary, or pushes me way out of my comfort zone. This is what He requires of me, to speak the truth in love with my words and with my life. To express His truth. Not my opinions. Not the opinions of learned men and women.
And what aspect of His truth am I to express in this season when just last week, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis, and people of similar views and beliefs, expressed clearly, with their words and their actions, hate? This – “And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands and territories. This was so that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grasp for Him and find Him, through He is not far from each one of us.”* He is near and He loves and calls me to love those who hate me.
I am joining Kate Motaung and other members of the Five Minute Friday community, on Saturday, for our weekly writing adventure. To learn about Five Minute Friday, click here. This week’s prompt is, “Speak.”
