Isaiah 36:11 Then Eliakim, Shebna, and Joah said to the Rabshakeh, "Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, for we understand it. Do not speak to us in the language of Judah within the hearing of the people who are on the wall."
Which language are we speaking today? Are we speaking the language of the people or the language of the kingdom of God? Perhaps, more pointedly, are we speaking in a way that the ordinary folk around us can hear and understand, or are we speaking in clichés and religious language that no-one can understand? The enemy is very good at speaking so that the masses can accept what he says. We need to make sure that we don't just hide behind jargon, but share the good news of the kingdom in a compelling way so that the world has a realistic opportunity to hear and respond!
