Passage: Colossians 4:6

Let Your Speech Be Always With Grace

Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

(COLOSSIANS 4:6)

This is not just to talk about the grace of God, but our speech should reveal the grace of God.

1. Speak the truth faithfully and sincerely, without lying, flattery, or exaggeration.
[Beloved, “…putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.” (EPHESIANS 4:25)]

2. Speak in love, avoiding gossip, whisperings, or anything that is injurious to the character of another. Avoid sowing discord or division.
[Beloved, “…speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.” (EPHESIANS 4:15)]

3. Speak kindly and pleasantly. Hard words reveal a hard heart. Unkind, cutting remarks reveal a bitter spirit.
[Beloved, “…be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.” (EPHESIANS 4:32)]

Grace is to the speech what salt is to meat. It makes it acceptable, good to the ear and a blessing to the heart. Grace in the heart will teach you how you ought to answer any person. Knowledge [Grace] is not acquired by speaking, but it ought to go before it.
