11 Nov God Is Talking To Us
Our campus was without phone service, the Internet and e-mail service today. I was more than a bit amused to get home this evening and to discover the
campus IT department sent an email to everyone on campus telling us there was no e-mail service.
Obviously communication is everything. Without it nothing happens. The exchange of ideas, intentions, desires, dreams, plans, appointments, reasons and motives is essential. In God’s desire to communicate to us He has used and does use a multitude of devices and means. In Hebrews 1 we read, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son.”
God really does want us to hear Him. He has so much to say to us. Everyday He tries via a variety of tools. The most effective ever was Jesus. Jesus told us how to live. He told us the future. He is coming again to take us to a place He prepared for us. He told us He is exactly like the Father. We don’t have to spend time or money exploring strange and exotic ways to meet with God. It is very simple. Study the life of Jesus. Spend time in the Gospels. Prayfully read the Gospel of John and you will hear His voice. God is way too smart to send us a message via a medium that doesn’t work!
