What thoughts run through your mind? What words come out of your mouth? If you want to know why Paul had such persuasive influence that he became the primary mover of Christianity, spreading it out through most of the Mediterranean world, then read the following to understand how he thought and spoke,

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen (1 Timothy 1.17). 

Paul knew the nature of God. Therefore, the apostle gave honor and glory everlastingly to God. Now that is a powerful way to think and to speak.

Questions:

  • How often do you think of the Lord during a typical day?
  • What do your words reveal about your thinking?
