God Has SpokenPosted by: bbcadmin
One of the ways you can show how much you care about a person is to let them know your feelings through personal communication. Whether it’s a phone call, a text message, a hand-written note, or a face-to-face meeting, personal communication goes a long way toward creating a bond between individuals. If human communication has that effect on us, how much more should divine communication affect us. The Bible tells us that God has communicated with us in three ways. He has spoken to us through his works of creation, through his word recorded in Scripture, and through the living Word, Jesus Christ.
First, God spoke to us through creation. Psalm 19:1 tells us, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” The following verses describe how all the inhabitants of the earth are witnesses to the power and majesty of our Creator.
Second, God spoke to us through his inspired Word. The Bible is God’s perfect record of everything we need to know to have a home in heaven and to live a godly life on earth (2 Peter 1:3). The apostle Paul affirmed this when he said, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Tim. 3:16).
Third, God spoke to us through the Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:3). He revealed the Father to us through his sinless life. He made access to the Father possible through his substitutionary death on the cross. All who repent of sin and trust him as their Savior will have eternal life (1 John 5:13).
God has told us how much he loves us through creation, Scripture, and Calvary. Have you responded to all his attempts to get your attention? If not, why not do so today? He’s waiting for you to respond.
