This is a brand-new word given to me by a dear brother in Christ who has supported my writings for many years. Verbomazing Definition: (adjective) This term is used to describe something that is both verbally amazing and linguistically fascinating. It combines the concepts of impressive language use and captivating communication. Not sure where this definition came from but the word certainly intrigued me. You see I have always been one to get captivated by a good expressive passionate speaker. In my later years, I developed a hunger for people that have the gift to verbally and passionately give life to the words they use, unfortunately, I am not one of those. I have to leave that part along with all the other parts of my writing to Jesus, who is the author and finisher of my faith (Hebrews 12:2). Jesus was and is the ultimate master of the art of Verbomazing words with life and great power, bringing hope to all who received what they heard.
I am working on Verbomazing or speaking with life exploding from every word. I remember telling my late pastor years ago during a discussion we were having about the low attendance at Easter Sunday Sunrise Service and I told him of an observation I had made a few years before, “people will only become as passionate about church stuff as the pastor is.” It took me most of my life to learn, passion is a fire that draws people to its flame! Truth is most of us are looking for something to become passionate about. Why? It breathes life into our fire, there has never been a trial that passion won’t take you through. Should you harbor any doubt about this, I send this challenge to you, start passionately following Jesus. I am not saying to become the best church member, I’m saying live for and with Jesus 24/7/365. Allow Him to pump your passion up to the Verbomazing level. I have a brother in Christ that says, “Can you feel me?” God fills his words with life-changing power that one can see, feel and desire. That is Verbomazing! As we read in Proverbs 10:11(NLT), The words of the godly are a life-giving fountain; the words of the wicked conceal violent intentions. Many are drawn to life!
How many of you would regularly attend a church where you felt unwelcome, the people were lackluster and the pastor spoke King James (a foreign language to many attendees?) How enthusiastic or enamored would you be to return? “I wouldn’t” is my answer to that question, unless that is where God told me to be, and then I would obey. Can you guess where this is going? Many Christians are living lackluster lives, with sort of a humdrum existence in Christ. Their focal point is usually based on the circumstances of the world completely infected with complaining and discouragement for all to hear. Honestly, who would want your life when they have one just like it? We don’t hear what we’re saying, we can’t see what we’re doing or many would change. Think about it, many people are against God because they don’t know Him and it is our nature to fear that which we can’t comprehend. I have found this true in talking with many people they are quick to become upset and defensive because they feel threatened by change. And here is their why; too many of us will give them a bible of which they have a deep-seated fear, no understanding, along with no desire to read. It turns out this gesture satisfies the beast within us. These people desperately need the Verbomazing stories of what Jesus is doing (not done) in our lives, they need to feel the passion in words and see it overflowing in our daily lives before they will meet Him. They need to see Jesus that can heal their wounds through His love within His people. I recently read “When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers,” taken from Henri J. M. Nouwen, Author of The Wounded Healer. We’ve all been in those dark places, wounded, broken, scared to death with no one, no direction, and no hope. As the healed, we may be called to administer a Verbomazing testimony, that brings a wounded soul to their healing!
God, I thank you for the brother that gave me Verbomazing, it has raised my excitement for sharing you with others and I offer this scripture to all the readers, Romans 15:13 (NLT), I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Father, I ask you to grow our passion into Verbomazing words and bolster our actions to that of compassion that the world might see you living and well inside of us. Amen
HAVE A BLESSED WEEK BY BEING A BLESSING TO OTHERS!
