Conversation with you.
Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Shalom. This week we will look at not a conversation with God, but with you.
Between You and Yourself.
Come on, admit it. You talk to yourself too. The real question here is whether that self-talk is false or true. Once you’ve checked in with God, it’s wise to run some quick diagnostics on yourself. Is your self-talk helpful or harmful as you approach this exchange with someone else? Are you believing the best about God, about yourself, and about the person you’re talking with? Or are you falling prey to lies?
How do people talk to themselves? Our theme scripture above gives us the clue.
Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within ourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Notice the statement “say within ourselves”, this is a self-talk. Do not believe lies about you, think and believe what God thinks about you.
This second conversation—the one that happens in your heart and head—is crucial. If your self-talk is laced with disparagement and denigration, then you’re better off heading back to conversation number one and giving God an opportunity to recast that inner dialogue. We have much more in these lines. Don’t miss your SPREADING THE LIGHT BULLETIN next Sunday.
We love you.
