"The Diary"

"Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name."  Malachi 3:16

I have been blessed with some amazing friends who love the Lord dearly and enjoy talking about Him.  When we are together, He is the subject of our conversations.  But for the most part it is hard to find "Christians" who really want to talk about Him.  They want to talk about everything else and very seldom does He even come up in conversation.  Why is this?  Talk to me about Jesus!  I want to talk about Him.  The world needs to hear us talk about Him.

There is no worthier subject than Jesus.  We waste our breath on so many other topics or subjects.  We certainly don't mind talking about our problems.  We don't mind talking about the trials that are going on in our lives.  We don't mind talking about other people.  We talk about everything from the weather to politics, but not Him.  He should be the grand theme of our conversations with each other.

I remember when I first turned my life over to the Lord and He became my Savior.  I went to visit a friend.  I wanted to share Jesus with her.  All I wanted to do was tell her about Him.  She kept changing the subject.  Finally I told her that I could talk about anything that she wanted to talk about, but I would rather talk about Him-- Who He is and what He has done.  So we talked about Him, and she surrendered her life to Him that night.  The world- the lost- need us for us to talk about Him.  They don't need us to keep our mouths shut.  They need to hear this good news.  They need to know there is hope and help.  But how will they hear if we never talk about Him.

The verse above tells us that those who fear and love the Lord talk often about Him.  When was the last time He was the topic of your conversation?  When was the last time you just wanted to talk about Him?  It also says that when we do talk about Him to each other, He records it in His book of remembrance.  In today's language that would mean-- God keeps a "diary".  Each time you talk about Him, He records it in His diary and reads it over and over again.  (How cool is that !!!)    

Have a great day.  Is Jesus the theme of your conversation?  If He is, God is keeping a "diary" of every time you talk about Him.
