TITLE: Words Need Feet

Words are sharper than a two-edged sword. They cut to the very marrow of the bones. Now that is power if you ask me. Words can destroy a man and reduce people to tears, but words without a mode of travel are just that, WORDS.

Can you imagine how the GOSPEL, the Holy Word of God, would have spread without willing feet of men such as the Disciples and my favorite apostle Paul. Paul endured such hardships so he could go forth and spread the Gospel. The key verses of Paulís life is found in Philippians 1:21-24.

Words need feet to travel. They need people who are willing to go forth all over the world teaching others about God. I am so thankful that I am one of Gods willing vessels who loves telling others what Christ has done for me. He saved a wretch such as me and now because of His grace I am a child of The King.

The moment I accepted Christ as my Savior He came into my heart and I now have His power to fight the good fight. With the Living Words of the Gospel, I can stand against the principalities of this world. We all can and that to me is power beyond our imagination.

Good devotional. A little longer next time perhaps, but still powerful.

Truth-filled devotional. Go and teach all nations...

Love your title - and your words display its meaning quite well. I'd love to see this expanded upon - with some examples, perhaps?
Nice job.

Lots of truth and encouragement here...

I noticed several very familiar phrases: "two edged sword", "cut to the very marrow", "fight the good fight" among them. If you're writing for a Christian audience, those words will be very familiar to them. Can you find ways to freshen this with new expressions of your own?

Keep writing, and feel free to use your full quota of words...you have something very valuable to say.

Short, to the point. Need a few more commas here and there, but good job.

Action "do" speak louder than words; and as you wrote... Paul manifested this many times. A Nice Testimony.

PS: And, by the way...loved the brevity of your entry. Alot can be said in just a few words! Thanks!

I thought this was very good material but I felt by the end that I needed a little more. I wish you would have taken it a little further - dug a little deeper with it.
