Passage: Ephesians 4:29-30
Big Idea: Communicate constructively.
Ephesians 4:29-30 (ESV)
29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Everybody has a profile. And our profile is under construction. It's not finished yet.
Our profile is not necessarily what we post on social media, or what we put on our resume. It's who we really are. Or perhaps more to the point, it's who we are truly becoming.
In this sermon series, we're going to take a closer look at a number of Christ-like characteristics worth striving for and being known for.
If, by the grace and power of God, we could somehow pour a little more of these traits into our profile, we would be better people, and the world would be a better place.
