Can You Hear Me Now?

Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal” (v. 1).

The information/computer age has sounded a superabundance of facts.  The “knowledge noise” has increased exponentially.

Years of intellectualism, commentary, denominational division and righteous crusading have blasted us with babel that can distract us from the elementary and harmonious tones of the Gospel.

Let’s remember that Jesus made things simple.

But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, ‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?’
Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”   Matthew 22:34-40

Love God.   Love people.

There are God-backed, time-tested, complex and simple wisdom-ful principles, commands and truths in the Word to guide us.  These can’t be ignored or minimized.  His Word has given us life and is our delight (Psalm 119:50,77+).  But when it comes right down to it, stick with the basics and you can’t go wrong.

Let’s make sure all of our revelation isn’t just a bunch of noise.

Let Him use your love – not your knowledge – to conduct His purposes.
