I want to continue on the subject of the “Language of Faith.” God wants Believers to become proficient with this language. That requires learning to read and comprehend the language. The Bible is the Christian Grammar Book.

But it’s not enough to only read and comprehend the Word of God. Remember, Philemon 6 says, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.” Communication also involves sound – speaking the language. God communicates TO us by His Word. He communicates THROUGH us when we see and say the same thing He sees and says. It doesn’t matter what adversity is present in your life. Through the cross of Jesus Christ there is a language God wants us to learn – The Language of Faith, which brings Redemption, Restoration, and Freedom.

If we learn and dare to speak this language – “I am healed by the stripes of Jesus”, “Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law of sin and death”, “I am a child of God and a joint heir with Jesus” – this communication of faith is effectual to restore dominion, authority, and power to the believer.

To the Editor:

The organizers for the Rainsberg Cross Benefit would like to take this opportunity to thank the volunteers and basket donors who helped make the event a success. We also appreciate having the opportunity to utilize the Nazarene Church Hall and the donations of paper products from the church as well.  Additionally, we would like to thank the Carrollton High School Basketball team for assisting by clearing tables. As many of you know, the efforts of Tom Cottis, Carroll County EMA, and David Wheeler, American Electric Power, were paramount in rescheduling a planned power outage for the day and time of our event and we are grateful for their work. We also would like to thank the more than 350 individuals who attended the event in support of the Rainsberg and Cross families. It is times like these that make us proud to be a part of such a caring community.

There are all kinds of programs to teach us how to speak every language known to man. These are important tools to help us communicate with people of different nationalities. But there is a language far more important to our journey through life; one that opens the doors to all things possible to them that believe. It is the language of faith. Verse 6 in the Book of Philemon says, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”

Have you ever heard the saying, “Do you see what I’m saying?” Effective communication must involve both seeing and saying. Sometimes our understanding is clouded because we don’t see clearly what is said.
