Speaking the Words of Christ

Scripture reading

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds, tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

–Deuteronomy 11:18

Thought of the Day

Yesterday, our twelfth grade Sunday school topic was on the Sabbath. We talked about what it meant and what we as people of faith needed to do to observe it and celebrate the Sabbath. One of the things we lifted up was for us to speak the words of Jesus on the Sabbath. I like that. Now I know we are supposed to speak the words of Jesus all the time, but I think we sometimes fall a little short. I am afraid that we speak our words most of the time.
I love the old hymn, “Wonderful Words of Life”. If you know it, sing the words. If you don’t know it, just read the words.

Sing them over again to me, wonderful words of life;
let me more of their beauty see, wonderful words of life;
words of life and beauty, teach me faith and duty.
Beautiful words, wonderful words, wonderful words of life.
Beautiful words, wonderful words, wonderful words of life.

Are you wondering what these wonderful words of life are? I’ll give you a hint. They are the words of Jesus.

Prayer

Lord, Make Your words, my words. Amen.
