Master of Conversations
Jesus was also the Master of conversations. He knew how to bring the kingdom of God to the heart of listeners. The woman at the well thought she would simply fill her jug of water and go back home. But when she met Jesus, He showed her the kingdom, and she ran to share the redeeming news with her community. Nicodemus came to Jesus at night and left the Master with a new perspective on living. Even Peter had a heart-wrenching encounter with Jesus, turning him from a fisherman to a powerful speaker. He gave a sermon, and 3,000 were baptized in one day.
Jesus told deep stories and shared words that changed lives. His words made people think long after He was gone. It’s been over 2,000 years, and we still read and examine the stories of Jesus. We still learn lessons and grow from the words He left for us. He let His life on earth become living words so that we could get a glimpse into a love story that is changing the course of this world.
I pray that the stories we tell with our lives look like the love story that Jesus told the world. Through the work of God in our hearts, we can share words that testify of unconditional love. I pray that we tell His story through our lives. So I wonder, what story will I tell today? What story will you tell?
