The God Who Speaks

Hebrews 1

Throughout human history, God has been speaking to mankind in various ways. His prophets were moved by the Spirit to proclaim and write His words, but His ultimate expression came through His Son. Today most believers acknowledge that God speaks primarily through His written Word, yet the voice that dictated the Bible has not ceased. Through His Holy Spirit, the Lord still communicates to every Christian who takes the time to listen with an open and receptive heart.

Stop to consider the wonder of having a God who speaks—not just a distant deity who thunders orders and admonishments from heaven, but one who actually wants to have a conversation with you! Why would the Lord of all creation go to such lengths to communicate personally with each of us? Consider the following reasons:

  • God loves you and desires a relationship with you..
  • He wants you to know Him personally through intimate communication.
  • He longs to encourage you to trust Him. As you experience the fulfillment of His words, your faith grows strong..
  • He wants to guide you. The Lord has a good purpose for your life and is willing to direct your decisions and ways so you can experience all that He has planned.

In our busy world, it's easy to take for granted this invaluable privilege of communication with God. If we are too busy or distracted to hear, His voice will not stop—but we'll miss out on the riches of an intimate relationship available only to those with receptive hearts and ears.

Sermon Series:

      We live in a world that squabbles over the beginning of the world and mankind. Some say that it was a Big Bang and some say that we were created by some sort of intelligent design. Still, others think that we have come from primordial ooze and the like. If only there were something that would tell us of our beginnings, something that was recorded for mankind from the maker of the universe. Oh, but there is, it is called the Bible, the Word of God, and it starts with 'In the beginning...'.

Last Week:When God created us in His image, He did so to impart to us a part of Who He is. He is a Person, who desires relationships, Who understands right and wrong, and Who communicates with language. We have all this, that is why we are made in His image.
