“His word brings reality into being, as at creation when “Let there be” resulted in “And it was”. When Jesus spoke two words to a dead man rotting in a tomb, “Come forth”, the man did!”
There is a mysterious and mighty power in the spoken word. When we are called to spread the gospel, it is not by actions (although those can open up conversation) nor is it by poster statements…you know, the ones that give your own personal position without any opening for relationship or conversation. Instead, we are called to speak, talk, converse and chat with real people about the real gospel. Can you imagine…talking to someone?! The nerve of it!
I was reading Tell the Truth by Will Metzger when I wrote this post.
