Pep Talk

Proverbs 30: 2-4 seems written as a rebuke to those who would think themselves too wise, it says “Surely I am more stupid than any man, and I do not have the understanding of a man. Neither have I learned wisdom, nor do I have the knowledge of the Holy One. Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in the His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name or His son’s name? Surely you know!”

And yet now we live in a time when the Christ of God HAS been revealed, we DO know who descended and ascended, we DO know who was with God in the beginning when He created the heavens and the earth, the Word who was with God and was God, we DO know the name of His son. It is JESUS.

Why do we know? Because it has been revealed.

Jesus told his disciples in Matthew 13 “But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears because they hear. For truly I say to you, that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it; and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”

We are blessed with such grace to have had our eyes opened to the mystery of the redemption of God through Jesus, the Messiah.

Many still long to know, many still think that God is far off, or non-existent, or doesn’t care about them, or is vindictive, or needs to be placated…… they have not met God’s answer to them yet……. Jesus, the One who died for them.

So let us live together as His body, so that when people see us, they see shining fruit, they see Jesus. Let us tell people about God’s answer.
