Words can be wonderful and they can be tragic. Let me quote words from the Bible that to me, are unforgettable.
How must King David have felt when he heard the words of Nathan, saying, "Thou art the man," after he had committed adultery with Bathsheba and had her husband killed. That story is in the 12 chapter of 2nd Samuel.
Or when Jesus, in His Sermon On the Mount, spoke of unbelievers with the words, "I never knew you; depart from me" (Matthew 7:23).
On the other hand, imagine how the Apostle Peter felt, after denying Jesus three times during the trial that sent Him to the Cross, when women went to the tomb of Jesus later to anoint Him, an angel said, "tell His disciples and Peter." This clearly let Peter know that he was forgiven. It was the turning point in Peter's life and ministry (Mark 16:7).
There's a non-biblical story that belongs here, of soldiers who became stranded on the front lines of a battle, and all escaped except one, who was so injured that he couldn't move. His buddy risked his own life to go back to rescue the wounded pal, who whispered to him, "I knew you’d come."
And may we offer one more from Jesus Christ as He welcomes all; "Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).
May the words you hear be of love, comfort, gladness, friendship, and all the other words of encouragement. Christ represents all of them; be sure to pass them along every chance you get. A word can change a life.
