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.
Ephesians 4:15 (NLT)
Our words should reflect the truth of God’s Word as well as His love. Our words point to what is in our hearts, and the more that our words line up with God’s Word, which is His revelation of His love for us, the more are we growing and maturing on our path of reflecting the image of Jesus. Let us pray therefore that we may be aligned with the heart of God, which is found in His Word and embodied in Christ Jesus—the Word made flesh.
