The Power of Words

November 9, 1989 the gates to East Germany were opened allowing free travel and commerce between East and West Germany. 

 

 

 

We’ll probably never know if the wall came down because President Reagan challenged the communists leaders with these four words, “Tear down this wall.”

 

We know he said them. He said out loud in public. Words the whole world had thought  for decades, but never spoken, and twenty-nine months later the wall came down. 

 

Maybe it was that simple. 

 

One Sunday morning, when we studying Acts, one of my fifth graders said to me, “Peter couldn’t have said just these words, “Repent and be baptized” and have 3,000 people respond. But that is pretty much what we are told. 

 

A different four words which eternal freedom. 

 

How will you use your words today?
