Our Everyday Language Is Important to How We Portray Truth

Our everyday language as Christ Followers is important to how we portray the Truth.

“Sending (or requesting) prayers and good vibes” for a situation is not language that portrays the Truth of God.

That “good vibes” comment, and other similar language like “luck”, is giving credence to the notion that prayers are not useful or powerful… possibly leading to a wrong thought that God doesn’t exist. Good vibes never heal, never bless, and never point to God. Does it hurt you as the Believer? Maybe, maybe not. But it doesn’t help non-Believers at all. They see that wishy-washy at best, and not fully committed to God.

Give no offense to the Jews or the Greeks or the church of God, just as I also try to please all people in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, so that they may be saved. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:32-33 (HCSB)

This conviction came to me a few years back when I would lightly use the phrase “good luck” or something similar. As I listened to God, I started hearing more of these language iniquities. Let us speak so that many may know God and the truth.

Be Loved, Beloved,
Heather
