"Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body (Proverbs 16:24). Don't we just love the positive? Positive words. Positive people. Positive things. Positive places. Besides the fact that Jesus loves us and died for us, being positive is one of many reasons to easily love Him -- He was and is positive. He was positive when He walked the earth and He is positive today. Jesus is love. He is generous. He is awesome in power and might. Why do you think He has so many followers? It's easy to follow a positive Jesus. That's all He can be, because He's so filled with love. I'm so blessed to be in the kingdom of God. Don't you think you are, as well?
Jesus was full of gracious words. I don't know one instance in the bible when He didn't use powerful positive words to get His message to people and many followed Him too. When it comes to gracious words, Jesus is the model and the guide. That's awesome to know, wouldn't you say? So be encouraged today especially if you are a follower of Jesus. If you aren't, guess what? You can too, "If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved" (Romans 10:9-10).
