Much in a few words…
“The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary“( Isa 50:4).
Often, for speaking much we need little or no learning, while to speak ‘a word’ we need great learning.
A great topic presented in an abnormally large volume very often yields little results, so also our words in our day to day life.
Mary magdelene went through a period of extreme sorrow after Christ’s crucifixion and Death. At last she was so wearied that she could no longer stay indoors; early in the morning on the first day of the week she ran to the sepulchre to take away the body of the one she love Much. However, one word from the Lord did a marvelous thing in Mary. That one word had a magnetic influence on that situation.
Jesus saith unto her, Mary . She turned herself and saith unto him “Rabboni”; which is to say, Master”. (Jn 20:16). That one word ‘Mary’ from the Lord, did a tremendous work in her spiritual life and thereafter she never was the old Mary. That one word from her Saviour made realise who it was that was speaking to her, whom she had first mistaken for the gardener. Before that, though the Lord had been standing close to her, she did not know that it was Jesus. Only one word, and not a Sermon, made her recognise her Lord; it dispelled all her fears, discouragements and weariness, filling and thrilling her heart with heavenly Joy, peace and grace.
Let us learn ‘how to speak a word in season ‘.
