God’s Word refreshes us. I was reminded again today that since God’s Word refreshes us we should be using it to refresh others. However, it isn’t enough just to have the verses there or to say them to another person, but what brings us the refreshment we need is the knowledge of the God behind the words of the Bible and what they mean.
I was challenged today as I thought about using God’s Word to encourage and refresh the souls around me in my body. What am I talking to them about on a regular basis. Am I pointing to the God of the Bible and giving His words to others so they can be drawn closer to the Redeemer? Or am I using my time to just talk about my family, my schedule, my hobbies. I was also challenged to pray that my words would be filled with God and that the hearer would be opened to hear them.
I hope you use your day of worship to think of God and talk about Him with others.
