Heb. 1:1,2 ¶ God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
God is always speaking, He speaks through His creation, He speaks through the events in our lives, He speaks through His written word, and He has finally spoken through His Son Jesus. Jesus is the revelation of God Himself, He is the very image of the Father. It does’t take long when you begin to look at the life, ministry, and death of Jesus to hear the voice of God speaking to us. We see His kindness, His power and authority, His wisdom, His love, and His grace in the life of Jesus. We see His authority when He drove out devils, His mercy as He forgave people’s sins, His wisdom in His teaching, and His kindness in His healing ministry. God has spoken to the world, the only question that remains is are you willing to listen to what He is saying. Here are some thoughts from Andrew Murray on today’s scripture.
“God hath spoken! For a time, imperfectly and provisionally in the prophets, in preparation for the more perfect revelation of Himself. But now at length the joyful tidings are heard —God hath spoken in His Son! God, the infinite, incomprehensible, unseen One, hath spoken! And that in His Son! Oh the joy and the glory! who can measure it? “Hear! O heavens, and give ear! O earth, for the Lord hath spoken. “God hath spoken! When man speaks it is the revelation of himself, to make known the otherwise hidden thoughts and dispositions of his heart. When God, who dwells in light that is inaccessible, speaks out of the heights of His glory, it is that He may reveal Himself. He would have us know how He loves us and longs for us, how He wants to save and to bless, how He would have us draw nigh and live in fellowship with Himself.”
You may ask, “is He speaking to me ?”. He is speaking to all of us, He is speaking to us in His word. Jesus is the word that became flesh, open up the gospels (my favorite is John) and soon you will hear God’s final word to man. What is that word? JESUS
