“Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.”
When we are called upon to speak, it is imperative that we speak the Truth. Those who develop a reputation of stretching, or even avoiding, the truth are rarely asked to speak again.
We must be ready to answer.
1 Peter 3:15
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”
If we are asked, what will we say? The only way to rightly prepare ourselves to be ready to answer is to constantly abide within the Truth of the Word of God.
2 Timothy 2:15
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
We must be sure to tell the Truth.
“Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.”
No one likes a liar. As children of God, we are His ambassadors and we are obligated to be truthful people. On the other hand, because we have the Truth, are we not obligated to share the Truth with others?
We must tell the Truth in love.
“But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
The only way we will impact eternity is if we tell the Truth with compassion and love. We can only reach those to whom we show the love of Christ. The Church must work together in love in order to fulfill the Great Commission.
