“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:6.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Colossians 1-4.
Do you have something to say?
Believers possess sure have; the Gospel! The good news. We do have something to tell.
But are we able to tell it in a winsome way? On our own? No way. We may win arguments and prove points but without using God-driven words we’re wasting our time.
I am convinced that we speak from a knowledge base that reflects what is important to us. I know sports. I read about them. I think about them. I have no trouble tuning into folks who are discussing sports. I even have two blogs (McClelland Miscellanea, Writing Scots) in which I write about sports.
The ease for me in which I talk sports must acquire similar traction in sharing the Good News. I need to know the Good News as well as I know sports. It must grab my thought process. It must drive me. I must chase the workings of the Good News.
As I write this, I am more aware of why my Good News sharing suffers. Why I am disappointed in it. It is a lack of concentration on the Good News. I must drive myself to be ready to share the faith that is within me. That faith needs to turn into knowledge and words…..His Words.
“Lord, thank You for Your Word. I know what I want to be…….rightly representing You. Help me to get there. Overtake my life. Remove the distractions that limit my capacity to share You comfortably in conversations. I have that comfort sharing sports. There must be a way for me to acquire a similar comfort in sharing the Good News. That Way is You. I beg for Your help. Thank You, Father.”
Let your words be the overflow of a Godly heart.
