From the Spirit

speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:19-20 NIV

In everything we do we should be led by the Holy Spirit.  This is critical in our communication with our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Life and death is found in the power of our tongue.  The words we speak to one another will either breath life or they will produce death.  When we encourage one another and base all things upon the leading of the Holy Spirit we naturally speak and breath life.  When we are critical and are led by the flesh in our communication we plant seeds of death.

We will be accountable for every word spoken when we stand before Jesus Christ.  We are called to be wise stewards of the gifts God has given us and this includes wise stewards of our tongues.  The more time we spend in God’s presence the more our words and our lives will align with the leading of the Holy Spirit.  The secret to the Christian journey is becoming a person of God’s presence.  When spending time in the Lord’s presence becomes our obsession and priority we will become a vessel of His glory.
