God’s Word, Your Words: A Practical Theology of Language

  • Oct 2012 Issue
Monthly Issues

Researchers at the University of Arizona have determined that a typical American speaks over 15,000 words per day. As Christians, do we think about the words coming out of our mouths? How do we discover God’s perspective on what we say? Scripture—the Word of God—has a great deal to say about our own words, how we can both grieve and glorify God with our speech.

This month in Today in the Word, we’ll examine God’s gift of language. We’ll see the connection between faith and speech, and we’ll explore Scripture’s instructions about how to use the gift of words in a way that pleases God. We’ll also see how the gift of the ability to use words is also connected to God’s gift of the Word, Jesus Himself. Through the gift of Scripture (God’s written word) we can know Jesus (the living Word) and have our own words transformed.

We hope that our study this month will encourage you in your journey of faith. All of us at Today in the Word appreciate your partnership to make the study of the Word of God available to people across the nation and around the world. Your support of this ministry is a blessing! Throughout this month, may you be blessed as the Lord guides the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart.
