We must speak the truth in love and not from a wounded area of the soul.
If the truth is spoken in love it will be better received, if it is spoken with mixture of soulish emotion, such as pride, anger, offence, frustration, bitterness, competition and insecurities, it may be truth coming forth but, if it’s not coming from a pure heart for people to accept and receive it, then it will not be received.
That is why the Bible teaches us to speak the truth in love that we may all grow up in him who is the head even Christ.
We are all members one of another and one joint supplies the other joint.
The body cannot function properly without all its members doing their part, this is not a one man show nor a two or three man show this is a whole body who needs to function to their call and abide therein in the right manner as we are taught and as God releases us.
So as we are speaking the truth in love we must also receive of others who are doing like manner properly discerning the body.
Plain and simply put, if your heart is pure in wanting to have people receive the truth and be set free, then you will speak it in love anything else is either soulish mixture or plain out flesh and not coming forth with a right heart and spirit.
We must also learn to receive one from another an, we also must learn to speak the truth exactly as it is written, not adding to or taking away, or taking it out of it context as not allowing the enemy leviathan to get in there and twist the Word of God.
God is not going to go outside His Word for any reason or person.
As the body and members one of another we are to serve one another in love until we all come into the unity of the faith and the fullness of Christ.
Now this is what the Bible teaches and we all need to get our emotions out of the way and bring out flesh under subjection in order to administer the word of God, the truth in the right heart, spirit, and attitude as we are instructed to do.
This is not my instruction, this is the truth and I have spoken this in love as it does need to be addressed.
I do not need to post 50 scriptures of which I could, explaining this, for all know enough about The Word to know this is truth.
Some may have to get rid of their anger, pride, insecurities, and frustration in order to receive this Word and if so, then so be it, for that would not be a bad thing but, rather a good thing.
If truth be told, everyone of us could use some more soul healing and more heart alignment in one area or another.
May we all go to the Father and ask him to show us any areas we may need healing, growth, and purity.
This is for the whole body of Christ, all of us.
God bless you all.
