Confessions of What I Speak

WHAT I MUST SPEAK AND WHAT I MUST NOT SPEAK I must let no corrupt word proceed out of my mouth, but only such a word as is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. Eph 4.29

I must speak evil of no man. Tit 3.2

I must restrain my lips. Pr 10.19

I must be continually filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in my heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Eph 5.18-5.20
