Keeping Your Testimony Intact - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series

Bible Verse: Ephesians 4: 15-16

Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

Reflect and Respond:

Being passionate is good thing, but anger - not so much- because anger damages your testimony for Christ. So take a moment to consider how you might speak the truth in love to others. According to Ephesians 4: 15-16, what will this accomplish? May you be blessed as you share the truth and love of Christ!

Prayer:

Father, thank you for bringing me into your family. Help me to speak the truth in love, not anger so that nothing stands in the way of me becoming more like Christ. Amen

When I have to have a courageous conversation, I always pray for the right words and for the Holy Spirit to soften the heart and ears of the person I need to speak with.

After I became a christian, i had many outbursts of anger.
Mainly because of injustice I saw.
And I justified it by saying God gets so angry, he flooded the world !!

Then one day I read
Galatians 5:19-20
"outbursts of wrath"
..will Not inherit the kingdom of God..
It hit me like a sword in my heart.
Conviction

And I ask God, how in the world do you deal with people who do so wrong.
Within a week or so I found a booklet on how to deal with anger.

That was many, many years ago
And I'm grateful He taught me how to Love

It’s easy to control my anger at work or in public, but much harder to control at home (with the people that mean the most to me)
Lord help me to be more like you each day and to love others as you love me.
