Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

The skeptic asked me, “Why do Christians talk so much about God?” Good question. Everyone talks about what is important to them, what’s in their heart. Maybe it’s about kids or grandkids, or the weather, or ball scores, or the latest movie or song, or a new found friend. So the path is from the heart to the tongue. While Christians do the same, something additional is in our heart. Moses wrote God’s laws/commands on tablets of stone (Exodus 24:12). Twice, the writer of Proverbs used the phrase, “The tablet of your heart” (Prov. 3:3; 7:3), indicating we are to write God’s laws/commands on our hearts – the true inner self which determines who we really are – to be felt, remembered, and shared. Jesus added, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45). So, here’s the Christian path – God’s law/commands given in a lasting, permanent, unchanging manner (“tablets of stone”), transferred to us (“tablet of your heart”), and then shared from our heart with others. What a wonderful opportunity we have at the Christmas season to share with others – from tablet to tongue.
