Dennis the Menace had this to say about Margaret, his chatty little friend—“Margaret always has something that she can’t stop talking about.”
I suppose that we all have a friend who likes to talk a lot. Perhaps others could say that we are their talkative friend!
Much of what we talk about has little significance—the weather, our little aches and pains, the latest local news, how our favorite team is doing, etc.
However, we Christians have something very important to talk about—the salvation that we have received through Jesus. Jesus says that we are to be his witnesses (Acts 1:8) and that means that we should be talking about him. The Jewish leaders ordered the apostles not to teach in the name of Jesus, but that did not prevent them from filling Jerusalem with the gospel message (Acts 5:28). This is what his followers had to say about Jesus—“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12).
Let’s join in with the apostles, who said in Acts 4:20, “As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
