From the book, Who Said That?  by Shari Abbott, Reasons for Hope* Jesus

There are many pithy (concise and forcefully expressive) sayings that are used in everyday conversation.  Many people use them, but most people have no idea of their origins.  It should be no surprise that many of these sayings are found in the Bible. They long pre-date the time when the sayings came into use.  This shows how the Bible has always had great influence on man’s life, relationships, and even everyday language.  The fact that so many of these saying are still in use today underscores the timeless relevance of God’s Word.

The book, Who said that? Common everyday sayings…where do they come from? shares more than 140 sayings.  

Conversation Starters

Get the book, learn the sayings, and then, the next time you hear one of these sayings, ask the question, “Who said that?”  

Be ready to share the biblical origin and turn the conversation to one of spiritual importance.  Use the biblical sayings from  Who said that?  to start conversations about Jesus!

“By the Skin of My Teeth” 

This saying comes from the words of Job. It’s a saying that is usually used in reference to a narrow escape from a disaster.

Job 19:20  My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.

The Book Who Said That? 

Add this to an Easter Basket. Tuck it in a Christmas stocking. Give it as a hostess gift.  Or buy it for yourself to get equipped, BECAUSE... 

It's easy to start conversations, but it's not easy to make them about matters of spiritual importance.

Turn the Talk

Jesus commissioned us to tell others about who He is and the saving grace He offers.  Starting those conversations isn't always easy.  So we must learn to listen for opportunities to "turn-the-talk."  Hearing a common saying, or using one as you speak, opens the "door" to share the origin of the words in the Bible and to talk about the importance of the Bible and the Person who wrote it!

Who Said That? NEW_WST COVER_2can also serve as a type of “tract” for your non-believing family and friends. It’s simply a look at the origins of sayings that we all use...until you get to the last few pages. The book closes with the saying, “Yada, yada, yada,” which means “you know, you know, you know.” The statement is then made: “God knows [yada] you” and the question is asked “Do you know [yada] Him?” The question is followed by a gospel presentation and an invitation to repent and trust in Christ, making this book a simple way to share the gospel with an unsaved (and often uninterested or unwilling-to-listen) friend.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
