Word for Today
The Word (40)-Be the Word for others to READ.
“Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart” (2Corinthians 3:2-3).
Do you KNOW that depending on the way you live your life, you can be the message, gospel and the bible for others to read and emulate? As most people know, children often learn by imitation and modelling rather than reading and analysis of information.
Without carrying a big bible and standing on the pulpit to verbally preach the gospel, what can others learn from you? I have said it many times, a dump person can preach CHRIST effectively through actions if he or she chooses to do so. Let people learn from your words and actions.
Many people spend a lot of time talking, without a single word of God being mentioned. Speak the Word only and miracles will begin to happen.
Henceforth, be careful with your words. The Word says:
“In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise” ( Proverbs 10:19).
Father, please give me the grace to live a life of truth and integrity for others to emulate in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
