What’s the word? May 21
But exhort one another daily, while it is called today lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. Hebrews 3:13 kjv
Speak to each other about these things everyday while there is still time, so that none of you will become hardened against God, being blinded by the glamour of sin. Hebrews 3:13 living bible.
We are told to talk to one another often about the things of God. Our families and jobs, activities are things that are important to us and we speak of these things to one another. But also we should encourage each other in the lord each time we can. It is in conversation about God with one another that we can be helped Along the way with God. As we speak of his goodness, his answers to our prayers, his word, what he is doing in us and in the world. We are brought to remembrance of what life really is about. The Bible says speak of these things while there is still time. So we only have so much time with our friends and families. Let us make sure much of this time is spent conversing in the things of God. Look at one of the reasons we are to do this: that we won’t be deceived by sin and drift away from God. We all need to be reminded from time to time this is Gods world and he is actively at work in us. At times we just need an encouraging word. In Proverbs 15 it says : how good is a word spoken at the right time. We were in Phoenix Arizona a few years ago at the general counsel meetings. We were on a subway type tram, going to service. A young man from the area, who was beside me said where you going? I told him to some church meetings. He said oh : Whats the word? He caught me off guard. He was wanting to hear what God had been saying to my heart Realizing I was a Christian. I dropped the ball that day. Let’s not drop the ball any longer. Let’s have a word to share with all those around us. We may just lift our brothers and sisters closer to God. God will certainly be pleased as we speak often of him.
Then they that feared the lord spake often one to another: and the lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the lord, and that thought upon his name. Malachi 3:16
