Speak Truth In Love
The emphasis of speaking in love sets aside the notion of acting like children which is the Truth. We can not afford to be tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, we are cautioned to speak the Truth of Jesus Christ in love as we grow. In consequence the passage of Matthew 27 highlights the repentance of Judas for the betrayal of innocent blood of Christ, the conviction of the condemned is not without judgement, even self-judgement but the eternal judgement of eternal life.
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
Witness (The Spirit is called “witness” because He verifies and testifies to the fact that we are children of God, Romans 8:16; Hebrews 2:4; 10:15); we for Your Goodness are sanctified and taught by good teachers the Truth and we thank You. For the joy that we share in the oneness because we are no more children and are not carried by false doctrines and we give you praise. We declare and decree blessings for those who have understood the benevolence of God in receiving the Truth and have fortified themselves with Truth against false teachers and doctrines, so that the condemned can be redeemed and justified by Faith for the Kingdom of God. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
