“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1: 1).
Having crafted us for the law, Lord Jesus, You filled us with words. We generate them. We analyze them. We interpret and reinterpret, define and redefine, moderate and mangle them. We utilize them both as swords and shields – to serve and skewer; to threaten and placate.
With this powerful tool comes great responsibility.
Engrave Your name on our hearts, Lord, that we may use words for their ultimate end of praising You and spreading the Gospel.
