50 Keys to Christian Communication

God’s Word is the foundational expression of His Omnipotence and Omniscience

  Communication is central to everything we do as human beings!! God placed so much emphasis on it that He based Creation on its principles. And God Said… Let there be light and there was light. His Word is the foundational expression of His Omnipotence. He has called us to be a manifestation of the truth of His Word. Thus, we are to reflect His Light because we are Children of His Light, as Living Epistles we are walking extensions of His Will because the Word of God is the Will of God. This is a big calling, a large responsibility to live up to!! With this in mind, we present some of the Keys to Christian Communication and Living. As communicators we can chose to either speak with motives of righteousness, which will reflect God’s Light, or we can speak words of darkness [notice how many of the seven deadly sins pertain to communication: Prov. 6:16-19]. The following principles will generally fall into these two basic categories, with numerous sub-categories that will follow. One of these categories is to Speak Healing Words [see #47 below]. This is by no means a complete work, but it is designed to provide a foundation from which we can build these important keys into our lives. When you see certain Scriptures that apply to some of these categories below, or new categories, I strongly encourage you to add them to your own list, and I’d be blessed to hear back from you on keys that you apply, or new additions that you see in your own life.
  The 50 Keys presented here include pertinent Scriptures relating to each Key, with specific verses quoted, and Strong's numbers supplied for your further study. May these keys bless your life as they continue to bless mine!
