One of our genetic blessings passed from our Father is that of creativity. He spoke things into being and so do we. Let there be light, He said once, and there was. Our talk creates. It creates doom or celebration. The slant of our talk propagates.
Yesterday, I found it interesting while reading of Jesus' approach to dead Lazarus that he said things intentionally of faith because people were listening. Just before calling him to come forth from the dead, Jesus was addressing the Father. I knew that Thou hearest me always; but because of the people standing around I said it, that they may believe that Thou didst send me. Jesus noted those standing around so he "said". ....because of the people standing around.... Why speak faithfully? That they might believe.
Point? He would use words creatively and Lazarus would arise.
We? Do we carry resurrection power in our speech? Exactly. Our talk gives others reason to hope. They come alive from their dead-end thinking. They respond in adventure because you spoke life into their dreams. Many are successful because a teacher spoke faithfully to their deadest moments....and abundant life broke out.
Often we are what people said to us. So take it to the bank; people become what we say to them. Speak creatively. People hear you.....and become what you said. So be fully aware, my friends, that productive life is on call when you happen upon any people standing around. Water coolers. Copy Machines. Elevators. Check-out lines. People----standing----around.
An opportunity from God.
