The Right Words
The Painting is of a Billabong in North West Australia that I painted in ‘Oils’
One of the lovely places that The Lord allows us see and to visit.
We do not have to worry about any right words to say about places like this
– just to look and enjoy them is enough.
Ephesians Chapter 6 verses 19-20.
Pray also for me, that when ever I open my mouth,
words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
for which I am an ambassador in chains.
Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
It was Paul who said the above,
however I believe it applies to all of us who walk with Jesus and want to declare the Gospel.
Sometimes we feel that we are not free to declare the gospel but we are free
and must ask that The Lord make the way for us to speak out to those souls around us
who are in darkness who do not know Jesus.
Let us pray that when we open our mouths that the right words also be given to us today.
The above is taken from the Book.. ‘Drink from the Cup’
So there may be a lesson in the above for us to think about how we speak to our family and friends. It makes a lot of difference when we speak kindly to each other – not just about sharing the Gospel but in our everyday lives. Our children and friends know how we feel sometimes by the way that we are speaking. If we feel sad, happy, angry etc., they can know by the tone of our voice. Also if we condemn someone for doing wrong it is not good to shout at them, let us try to tell them in a kind way so they do not feel too bad about whatever it is we are trying to get them to put right. Well at least we can but try.
