We were determined to share with you
not only the gospel of God, but our very selves as well.
I Thessalonians 2:7b-9
Our media is so filled with words that bend the facts and political figures who “misspeak” that society has become numbed for lack of truth. Words come to life within a person. Who we are speaks louder than what we say. We cannot hide our character under our words for very long. It is easy to bluster against evil actions or to speak in pious language but eventually our listeners see through us..But, being in contact with another whose presence reveals an inner spirituality and integrity which meets our own desire can be truly inspiring. We need not hide behind safe words. We are called not only to share the truth of the gospel but also to share it in our very selves.
May I speak the truth in love.
Am I afraid to speak what I truly believe? Do my words allow others to understand my beliefs and aspirations? Where do I share my very self?
I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.
Never, for the sake of peace and quiet, deny your own experience or convictions.
Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.
In the last analysis, what we are communicates far more eloquently than anything we say or do.
We too often bind ourselves by authorities rather than by the truth.
If you put a small value upon yourself, rest assured that the world will not raise your price.
