Let’s talk about something interesting today: Jesus.
Did you know that when you talk about The Lord, He listens?
Our Sunday school lesson last week was from Mt. 16:13-20, when Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do you say I am?” The principle of our lesson was ‘practice talking about God.’ We encouraged our children to get to know Jesus in a more personal way, so they have something to share about Him.
One thing I forgot to mention to them is that when we do talk about The Lord He listens.
Malachi 3:16-17 says, “Then those who feared The Lord spoke to one another, and The Lord listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear The Lord and who meditate on His name. “They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts, “on the day that I make them My jewels, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.”
The Lord is writing a book of remembrance. When we talk about Him: meditate on His name, praise Him, talk of what He’s done in our lives, talk about His greatness, talk of His strength, talk about Him around our tables and campfires, share about Him with others or with one another, He hears.
He listens and it is so important to Him that he is having a book written to remember the words and one day we will be made His jewels. :).
Talking about Him is never done in vain. He says He will spare us…just for talking about something that is probably our favorite subject anyway. I love to hear people talk about The Lord and His greatness.
Who do you say that Jesus is? If you’re not sure, read more about Him. If you know, then share it. Talk about Him, and as you honor Him, He will record it to be remembered always, and one day you will be His jewel for all eternity.
Happy to share,
