January 19, 2020: Gracious Words...
“Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones." Proverbs 16:24 (NIV)
There’s something delicious about words that build others up. Words of wisdom. Words of grace. Words that bless, Words of truth. Words that display and pass on the love of Christ. Becoming a true follower of Christ changes the way we choose our words. Because Jesus changes the heart from which each word flows. Our words reveal what we’re made of.
Without God’s power transforming our words from the inside out, our words are exactly what you’d expect…Jesus-less words

We "are not to think of ourselves more highly than we ought to think." (Rm. 12:3)
The three smallest bones in the human body are in the middle ear: the malleus, incus and stapes.
Without them hearing is impossible. So, in the Body of Christ, personal talents or spiritual gifts do not determine significance. Every believer is an essential part of a healthy & functioning local church body.
