Words of love, hope and truth …

“And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will” (2 Timothy 2:24-26).

Those who are called to bring the Word of the Lord to others must bring to them words of love – “be kind to everyone”, words of hope – “There’s a way back to God from the dark paths of sin. There’s a door that is open, and you may go in; at Calvary’s cross is where you begin, when you come as a sinner to Jesus”, and word of truth – “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work” (1 John 3:8); “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free … 36 If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:32,36).
