Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know  how to speak a word in season to him that is weary” (Isa 50:4).

Often, for speaking much we need little or no learning, while to speak “a  word” we need greater learning.

A great topic presented in an abnormally large volume very often yields little results; so also our words in our day-to-day life.

Mary Magdalene went through a period of extreme sorrow after Christ’s crucifixion and death. At last she was so wearied that she could no longer stay indoors; early in the morning on the first day of the week she ran to the sepulcher to take away the dead body of the One she loved much. However, one word from the Lord did a marvelous thing in Mary. That one word had a magnetic influence on that situation.

“Jesus saith unto her, Mary, She turned herself and saith unto Him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master” (Jn 20:16). That one word “Mary” from the Lord, did a tremendous work in her spiritual life and thereafter she never was the old Mary. That one word from her Saviour made her realize Who it was that was speaking to her, Whom she had first mistaken for the gardener. Before that, though the Lord had been standing close to her, she did not know that it was Jesus. Only ONE WORD, and not a sermon, made her recognize Him; it dispelled all her fears, discouragements and weariness, filling and thrilling her heart with heavenly joy, peace and grace.

 Let us learn ”how to speak a word in season.“
