Pointing the World to Christ with our Words

Posted on: 7-15-112015

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” Proverbs 18:21

i think most of us do not realize the power our words have on other people. We say things we really don’t mean sometimes, not thinking about the impact our words may have on the person we’re speaking to. One of my favorite songs is “Words” by Hawk Nelson. The chorus says:

Words can build us up

Words can break us down

Start a fire in our hearts,

or put it out.

Let my words be life,

Ler my words be true

I don’t wanna say a word

Unless it points the world back at You!

i wonder what it would be like is we only spoke words that pointed the world to Christ. It may be a lot quieter than it is right now, that’s for sure! There would be no more gossip, slander, lying, and negative talk going on because none of those things point the world to Christ. Instead we would hears words with a positive message, words that encourage, build up, and help others. We have opportunities every day to point people to Christ just by what we say or don’t say, but we also have the same opportunity to lead them away from Him by what we say or don’t say. The choice is ours…what kind of words will we choose today?
