Based upon a recent survey, 13 percent of residents in the United States speak Spanish. As migrants from Central American countries continue to flock to the United States border with Mexico, this number will likely continue to climb. As someone who took two years of Spanish in high school and another two classes in college, I thought it would be appropriate to feature my first Spanish artist Sarai Rivera.
Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s favor) to those who hear it, Ephesians 4:29.
The song I selected is Suelto which translates into English means loose. Like any word, you have to know the context in which this word occurs and takes place. While my Spanish is still pretty rough, Sarai’s song brought me to the passage above. The apostle Paul calls the Church at Ephesius to avoid being loose with their words. Meanwhile, anyone who may be hindered by some sort of a speech impediment can be loosed and set free by the power of the Holy Spirit. May Suelto speak to your heart.
