Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happens to them all.
Psalms 119:57 You are my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep your words.
Adjective- (of a remark, opinion, or idea) Overused and consequently of little import; lacking originality or freshness.
Synonym- shackneyed - banal - commonplace - trivial - threadbare
While there are many words you may never find need to use, such as the many -ologies and the -isms; there are a number as essential to our redemption as redemption. Do we only have a vague sense of how we've heard the words used over the pulpit, or are we confident in the use of these words ourselves? Can we explain to someone that not only does Jesus' blood sanctify us- wash our sins away and leave us stainless, but His death justifies us- leaving us as guilt-free as if we had never sinned? (Don't forget the little mnemonics tool: It is "Just-if-i'd-never sinned.")
That's a lot to think about. Maybe you have some words to add to the list. But, regardless of where we find ourself in our ability to explain the gospel of Jesus, words won't save anyone if they never hear them. It would be without purpose and just as trite to understand the gospel in entirety and yet to never have shared it with those around us.
