I consider myself a pretty normal person. I like sweet tea, fried chicken and home-made ice cream. I like jeans, a good movie and a real friend. I like riding with the window down, the radio up and a breeze blowing in. I say what I think, sometimes before I think about what I say and I know that I’ve got work to do.
Last night as I was reading some Scripture, The Spirit brought me to this verse: “Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.” Colossians 4:6
My speech is to always be with grace. Not some of the time and not just when I feel like it. The same grace that God spoke and speaks into my life, I am to speak into the lives of others.
It then says that my grace is to be seasoned with salt. Salt accentuates and brings out the flavor, while at the same time preserving and causing my words to last. Grace words seasoned with salt help me to know what to say and to who. The how always stays the same “in grace”!
God spoke and speaks grace into my life and I am to speak grace into the lives of others for His glory. I’ve got some work to do, and I am pretty excited about it. May the meditation of my heart and the words of my mouth be full of God’s amazing grace. grace words that have a sweet sound and bring salvation, freedom and release to all who hear.
