Our Natural Tendency is to be quiet… it takes the power of the Holy Spirit to speak up.
It makes a difference every time you Speak Up.
…my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Is. 55:11 NIV
God’s Kingdom is extended by Speaking words.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. Jn. 1:1-4
Jesus speaks today through our vocal cords.
We are the only creation of God that can speak.
Actions without words are insufficient.
Speak the Truth in Love.
…speaking the truth in love… Eph. 4:15
1st: Be determined to speak truth to people.
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life…”
Your success is attained by a persistent expression of truth – God’s reality – one conversation at a time.
Engaging in conversations are the means of expression.
2nd: Express truth motivated by love and expressed in love, acceptance and forgiveness.
Refusing to be alienated & put off by the sin of others is what qualifies us to speak up.
If a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself, lest you also be tempted. Gal. 6:1
We are not to become judgmental.
Your words are nullified when spoken from judgment, anger or hurt.
Speaking the truth is not criticism.
Show them the way without condemnation.
Love is the road, that truth must travel over.
A heart of love finds the right way… the best words to Speak Up.
