Earlier in this study we saw that we are to speak truth with one another as a broad parameter to what comes out of our mouth and heart. cf. Psalm 141:3 and Colossian 3:8
** Paul is now going to get far more specific in his instruction to us as to how we are to speak. Instead of "unwholesome" words, what are we to speak?
** How frequently are we to be ready to do this?
** Who was the Master at doing this?
** If we were to be faithful in this area, what impact would it have on our audience?
V.30 ** According to verse 30, if we do not control our speech what will be the impact upon the Spirit of Christ in us?
** What rather significant reason is given to us in this verse for not wanting to grieve Him?
** These last two verses will give us the fifth way we are to exhibit our Christian faith.
