Ephesians 4:30 states, “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” The context of this verse is about our speech. With that in mind, James was given a warning dream, where he was told to be careful in the days ahead of how we conduct ourselves. There is a coming “A War of Words.” We are not to get caught up in the devil’s scheme, but to warned ahead of time and avoid the enemies’ snare. Instead of returning insult for insult, let’s live by the Sermon on the Mount that Jesus taught us to do.
