Can You Speak Like This Man?
by Yvette Nietzen 5/27/2008 / Devotionals
Jesus was know as the carpenters son. It was not until he began to fulfill His ministry that he was later called Son of David.
For the Pharisees to mention that no man ever spoke like the man, they must have been impressed with his vocabulary and the way Jesus expressed Himself. The same was said about the Apostles. The Bible says that the Apostles were unlearned. But because they had been with Jesus and spent time with him, they learned to speak just like him.
Have you ever been tongue tied, at a loss for words or difficulty in expressing yourself? The solution is simple. Spend time with Jesus and the word, and soon your speech will become eloquent and full of flavor.
Ask the Lord for clarity when you speak, minister or preach, and He will do it. Let others begin saying how awesome you are when you minister, and how powerful your words are.
Our words are powerful and sharper than any two edged sword. May we use our words to edify the Body of Christ and bring people closer to Jesus.
