Putting words in my mouth

But when you are arrested and stand trial, don’t worry in advance about what to say. Just say what God tells you at that time, for it is not you who will be speaking, but the Holy Spirit. Mark 16:11

Giving practiced, “Sunday school” or “apologetics class” answers to difficult, searching questions about life and God may not be the immediate message Christ has for those asking the questions. These souls are more important to Christ than they are to us and the Holy Spirit, more articulate than any of us could ever be. We are not responsible for Defending the Faith in every conversation. Our responsibility is to be available to the Holy Spirit to engage in conversations that communicate Christ’s love and grace to each individual.

Lord, please put words in my mouth.
