What's In A Word? Common Words in Online Reviews of Senior Living




What's in a word?


Oftentimes as Christians we tend to use our words a little too loosely. We all know how the tongue has the ability to tear down and destroy, however, do we ever really focus on the power that our words carry? Do we understand that the world was created with words? More importantly, Jesus is the word made flesh! 


“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

‭‭John‬ ‭1:1‬ 


“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

‭‭John‬ ‭1:14‬ 


     As Christians, Jesus said that we would do even greater works that even He had performed! This is a promise made to the believers that we will all do well to embrace! What a wonderful prophecy the Lord has give concerning the believers to follow Hom in the ministry of the gospel. 


 ““Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

‭‭John‬ ‭14:12‬ 


Our words can create as well as tear down, to raise the dead, to heal the sick, all with just a word! What a privilege we have in Jesus!


“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.”

‭‭John‬ ‭6:63‬ 


“Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.”

‭‭John‬ ‭5:28-29‬ 


“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8:16‬ 


“Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭107:19-20‬ 


We are overcomes by only a word and a name!


“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭12:11‬ 


We MUST HOLD FAST to these truths, always knowing and trusting that we hold these promises until the very end. The Lord (Word) will remain well beyond time. The Word was before time began and will without exception remain after this age. 


“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:35‬ 


“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭13:31‬ 


“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭21:33‬ 


God bless you as you serve the Lord!
