TRANSFORMING the TONE

 

John 4:24

King James Version

24 God is a Spirit: 

and they that worship him 

must worship him in spirit and in truth.


How to transform the tone of your writing?

How to make your writing pure, perfect, precise, and powerful?

SPIRIT guided me to the idea, from an earlier post.

He guided me to tell you this:

PRETEND you're WRITING to GOD.


How could that be?

How can it not be?

Scripture says:

Genesis 2:7

King James Version

7 And the Lord God formed man 

of the dust of the ground, 

and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; 

and man became a living soul.


Job 33:4

King James Version

4 The spirit of God hath made me, 

and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.


Those verses testify, that the SPIRIT of GOD is in us.

He breathed life into us.

If we want our writing to be transformed, let's pretend we're writing to the SPIRIT of GOD, in each one of us.

That ought to transform the tone of our writing.

There will be love.

There will be respect.

There will be kindness.

Actually, do so, in EVERYTHING we think, say, and do.

Let us WALK in the SPIRIT, and it shall be so.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

King James Version

19 What? 

know ye not that your body 

is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, 

which ye have of God, 

and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.

WORDS as TAPESTRY

 

Colossians 2:2-4 

King James Version

2 That their hearts might be comforted, 

being knit together in love, 

and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, 

to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, 

and of the Father, 

and of Christ;

3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

4 And this I say, 

lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.


A bunch of words form a phrase.

Words and phrases form sentences.

Sentences create paragraphs.

Paragraphs create letters, chapters, books.

Books create libraries.

Libraries produce learning.

Do you see the beauty of just one word, then?

Pretty much like a dollar needs a cent.

A nation needs people.

A teacher needs students.

We all need each other.

A whole comes from one unit.

A tapestry was woven from threads -- grown, dyed, separated, woven together.

Ever heard of the following?

"Threads of thought."

"A weaving of words."


The source of everything was God.

In the beginning, there was nothing.

The earth was void.

Genesis 1:1-2 

King James Version

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, 

and void; 

and darkness was upon the face of the deep. 

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.


And then God spoke the FIRST words:

Genesis 1:3 

King James Version

3 And God said, 

Let there be light: 

and there was light.


And yet, how could God not create with His Word?

He was the WORD.

Everything started from God.

John 1:1-4 

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; 

and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; 

and the life was the light of men.


So, how could man take out God from his writing?

God is owner, master, and author of words, apart from being the WORD Himself.

The whole Bible is His Word.

Until such time man acknowledges God, the TRUE author of life, man can be as nothing.

His work, his writing, will fall flat.

For it doesn't have God in it.

But mine does!
