Imagine this man, deaf and mute from birth. He had never heard a human word. He had a speech impediment and was described as mute. He had never spoken a conversation with anyone.
Now the first words he hears in his entire life are the words of Jesus. And the first person he speaks to is Jesus.
I can’t help but think of a great contrast between us living today. How many human words do we hear every day? What do they mean? What is so important to be spoken? Yet, so many words.
However, when was the last time you spoke of Jesus outside of Church? When was the last time you used his Name when you were not in a church environment? Why do we have the gift of speech if we never say his name in everyday conversation?
