Christians Jokes and Idle Talk

As children of God we are called to be holy men and women, saints. We are not of this world. We are of the Kingdom of God and that must be reflected in everything that we do and also in what we say, our vocabulary. We cannot talk like the world talks, we must be holy in every respect, in every word that we speak, as Paul also wrote in Ephesians 4:29: “Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, that it may give grace to those who hear. “ Friends, as children of God we must be very careful what we say.
We are called to be saints, we are not of this world. We cannot be conformed to this world and carry on with joking and coarse jesting, doing what other people in this world are doing. With modern technology people have got these acronyms that they use in their messaging and much of that is unholiness, (OMG etc.) We cannot participate in the jokes of the world and as children of God our vocabulary must be sanctified.
I read Ephesians 5:3-6 Paul says: “But do not let immorality or any impurity or greed EVEN BE NAMED AMONG you, as is proper among saints; and THERE MUST BE NO FILTHINESS NO SILLY TALK, OR COARSE JESTING, WHICH ARE NOT FITTING, but rather give thanks. For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for BECAUSE OF THESE THINGS THE WRATH OF GOD COMES UPON THE SONS OF DISOBEDIENCE.” Dear friends, our words are extremely important because our words reflect what is inside of us. If we are a child of God, then we will speak what is inside as Jesus also said (Matthew 12:34) “For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart. “The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure brings forth what is evil. “And I say to you THAT EVERY CARELESS WORD THAT MAN SHALL SPEAK, THEY SHALL RENDER ACCOUNT FOR IT IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT. “FOR BY YOUR WORDS YOU SHALL BE JUSTIFIED, AND BY YOUR WORDS YOU SHALL BE CONDEMNED.”
Our words are important, dear friend, we will be judged by our words. As a child of God our words must reflect that Jesus Christ is inside and that we are of the Kingdom of God.
May Jesus bless you.
